Join the founder of The Diggers Club and the Diggers Foundation, Clive Blazey for an intimate afternoon talking seeds and food security at Pocket City Farms.
As part of the inaugural Grow It Local Festival, The Diggers Club team are coming to town. Be part of this special afternoon to hear firsthand about Clive’s life’s work in preserving heirloom seed varieties and the best sustainable gardening traditions. Clive has been a fierce opponent of the corporatisation of our food supply and a champion of open pollinated varieties and local growing for many decades.
Founded in 1978, the Diggers Club is Australia’s largest gardening club, providing backyard growers with access to the rare and unusual. In 1991, Clive and Penny Blazey, visited the Seed Savers Exchange in Iowa and began their quest to rescue and preserve heirloom seeds. Hear the seed savers story from Clive then join a Q&A discussion on food security and local growing with Clive, Pocket City Farms co-founder Emma Bowen and Diggers Education Manager, Jac Semmler.
