Pollinating the Seed Movement: Community Seed Organizers’ Symposium

Presented in partnership by ACORN and Dalhousie Libraries, the day will include a tour of Seeding Ideas seed library and other campus projects, a seed swap, a resource showcase of useful publications, websites, and tools, networking time, and - of course - great workshops and presentations about all aspects of community seed organizing.  We'll hear from organizers around the region about their tips and strategies for managing volunteers, engaging youth, fundraising, partnership building, seed handling & tracking, and more!

We're now requesting proposals from anyone with knowledge, tips, resources, and strategies to share with the community! Please complete the RFP form by July 13, 2018!

Please note that ACORN will provide a van from Sackville, NB, as well as car pooling support to make it easier for NB and PEI participants to attend.
