Agrovelocity visits the Community Harvest Gardens and the Heirloom Seed Sanctuary

Cate henderson showing the heirloom seed sanctuary gardens to visitors, Clement and Maximilien

July 10, 2015: Great visit today from Clément Gremillet and Maximilien Koegler who are from France, learning about and filming urban gardens across North America. They asked to learn about the Community Harvest Garden that operates in a food desert in Kingston’s north end, and about our Heirloom Seed Sanctuary. The sanctuary gardens are on the site of the Motherhouse and preserve a diversity of organic, open-pollinated seeds.

Tara Kainer joins Cate, Clement and Maximilien in the Heirloom Seed Sanctuary barn as Cate explains how the heirloom seed sanctuary works.
