PermacultureWest is excited to bring you another series of online workshops for 2023, starting this January. In collaboration with some of our permaculture educators in WA, we hope to bring you more webinars at your convenience for a discounted rate to encourage everyone to put their skills and knowledge into immediate action.
Presented by Karlee Bertola, this first workshop for 2023 – A REALLY SEEDY SUNDAY – follows last year’s Seedy Sunday session on Basic Seed Saving. This time Karlee is going to teach us a more advanced level of Seed saving.
Karlee will talk about more topics and techniques in this zoom session:
- Open-pollinated, heirloom and F1 seeds – what does it all mean?
- Basic genetics for seed saving
- Main vegetable families and their seed saving requirements
- Isolation techniques to get pure seed
- Some of her favourite varieties to grow!
- Q & A time for any seedy questions.

My partner and I own King River Avocadoes. I lecture in organic horticulture at South Regional TAFE. I Studied at UWA completing a Bachelor of Science in Restoration Ecology, afterwards working in Sustainable agriculture at the Gillami centre in Cranbrook and then at the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD), setting up horticultural trial sites and benchmarking properties for Aboriginal Landholders. While at DPIRD I completed a Diploma of horticulture and Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, moving on to teach at South Regional TAFE.
I have an extreme passion for growing food and sharing knowledge. I have become a serious seed saver, saving my own seed for the last 10 years. I did my Permaculture Design Certificate at FairHarvest in Margaret River (highly recommended) and completed my Certificate IV in Permaculture in 2020.
And in my spare time, I am an artist, which isn’t much these days.
