Seed School – Denver, CO

Join us for a very special Seed School at the magnificent Denver Botanic Gardens!

April 2 – April 7, 2017
Denver Botanic Gardens, Denver, Colorado

With nearly 900 graduates around the world, Seed School is a groundbreaking educational course that is helping shape the local seed and food movements far and wide. This exciting collaboration with Denver Botanic Gardens is a long-awaited pairing of two pioneering, seed-focused organizations that promises to be an epic, life-changing week. Come experience Seed School amidst the beauty of one of the country's top botanical gardens!


Also setting this Seed School apart from past sessions, students will have the opportunity to immediately put their training into action. As a final project, the class will work collaboratively to help design an actual seed system for Denver Botanic Gardens' Chatfield Farms, a 700-acre native plant refuge and working farm located along the banks of Deer Creek in southern Jefferson County.
