SAGE Education is the mainstay of our mission and an important source of income for development of the SAGE Garden.
CONTACT THE SAGE EDUCATION OFFICER
The program grows and evolves with each year and now includes workshops on growing and cooking food, making use of food by-products, soil biology and health… even beer making.
Every workshop is fully catered by the SAGE Events team using locally grown produce, often from the SAGE Garden itself.

CONTACT US ABOUT HIRING SAGE
The SAGE Seed Savers group was established in 2014 in order to preserve and promote growing food with local provenance. Seeds collected by members of this group are conditioned to the local climate, ensuring hardier plants and more successful gardening.
The aims of the group are to:
- preserve locally adapted edible heirloom seed varieties
- actively increase the growing of these varieties in our region
- promote seed saving through ongoing education programs
- assist in developing additional passive income streams for sustainable food growers through the wholesaling of heirloom seed varieties
Through collecting, storing and reproducing locally adapted varieties of heirloom seeds, we record and share their stories.
To build up stock in the first few years, we are concentrating on the following varieties:
- Lettuce, Webbs Wonderful
- Tomato Druzba
- Green Beans, Marsden Moruya
- Broad Bean, Aquadulce
- Sunflower, Russian Giant
- Eggplant, Diamond
- Basil, Sweet
- Snow Pea, Climbing
- Broccoli, Waltham
