Seed Stories & Symbionts

Making honey time machines, with seeds preserved in raw honey together with the amazing seed sharers and savers we met – to be planted in two years time on the new moon! The last Roving Microscope session of the yearSeed Stories & Symbionts at Spitalfields City Farm with London Freedom Seed Bank and Connected Seeds Library. We talked and shared stories on seed saving and sharing, heritage seeds, food security and freedom, seed sovereignty, open pollination, rhizobium, preservation techniques and symbiotic relationships. Is seed sharing a rebellious action?

Beekeeper Sean from bought fermented pollen to the workshop which we tasted and looked at under the microscope – floral powdery and tangy, and shaped like little microscopic spiky balls.
