Rooted in Community: Seed Starting with Masagana Flower Farm – RECORDING COMING SOON

$0.00$30.00

March 27 | 2pm CDT (Winnipeg time)

Join Lourdes Still, founder of Masagana Flower Farm (@masaganaflowerfarm), in our live, online community space on Zoom, to learn how to start your own seeds. The recent pandemic drove many to stockpile toilet paper and bottled water – let’s pivot from that to focus on real food security… let’s plant, and share, seeds. Learn about the supplies you’ll need, the best spot in your home to grow, and tips for what to grow and when.

By donation. Pay what you are able. 10% of proceeds to local causes (to be listed soon). The remainder to teachers/hosts/organizers. To those who are unable to contribute financially at this time, or must pay at the lower end, know that you are contributing with your presence in the community. We need each other. To those who are able to pay more, thank you for supporting your local farmers, producers, makers, and community members, many who need your support now more than ever! Whether you pay nothing or the highest level, you are appreciated and welcome.

Book your spot in the gathering today, and we’ll send you a link to the Zoom event this weekend. Thanks!

If you’d rather donate via eTransfer, please send it to hello@homesteaderfest.ca. No security question required.

Lourdes Still is a flower grower in South East Manitoba and is the founder of Masagana Flower Farm & Studio. She moved to Winnipeg in 2009 and growing herbs was her first taste (literally and figuratively) of Manitoba gardening. She was an international flower buyer turned flower grower. As her interest in floriculture deepened, she participated in “Floret Online Flower Farming Workshop”, attended Sustainable Flowers Workshop in Calgary, worked at a Manitoba flower farm and is on track to finishing the Master Gardener Certification Program. She is a passionate learner, an advocate for locally grown flowers and food and a true believer that no matter how dire our situations are, we can still cultivate beauty and harvest bountifully in the heart of Canada.
