Slow Food Seacoast, in collaboration with Seacoast NH Permaculture, presents the Fourth Annual Seed to Soil Garden Conference, Saturday, March 10 from 10 am to 4 pm at the Seacoast Waldorf School, 403 Maine 236, Eliot, ME. Join a community of gardeners working to preserve our agricultural heritage and teach a love of gardening to all generations.

The garden conference begins with a cooking demonstration followed by a potluck lunch from 11:30 – 12:30. Afternoon workshops run from 12:45 – 3:30 followed by a seed share beginning at 3:30. Local organizations will be tabling and offering demonstrations.

The Program. This year we are thrilled to have Heidi Feinstein, chef, farmer and founder of Life Alive Urban Oasis Organic Cafe, opening the conference with a cooking demonstration entitled Scrumptious and Simple Sauce Making.


This year’s workshops include:

Edible Landscapes: For Health, Habitat, Families and the Future with John Forti

Starting a Slow Food School Garden with Alison Magill

Big Yields from Small Spaces. with Pamela Hargest

Seed Saving 101 with Jacqueline Bruhn

In addition to workshops, Piscataqua Seed Project will be sharing seeds and handing out information about the forthcoming seed library in Portsmouth. We will have several hands on activities as well.


Tickets are $15 general admission. This year we are asking those who wish to and who are able, to purchase a Supporter ticket for $25. The additional funds will go into our School Garden fund.

Why Seed to Soil? The cycle of life and of our food begins with a seed. As a plant grows, matures and dies, it returns to the soil as organic matter that nourishes the seeds of the next generation. In parallel, experienced gardeners nourish the younger generations of growers and gardeners. This cycle of life is what we wish to promote at our conference.

This year’s event is hosted at Seacoast Waldorf School. Waldorf curriculum focuses on outdoor play and experiential learning, much of which happens in their school gardens!
