About the event
Now in its fourth year, our Seed Saving Network has distributed free open-pollinated seeds to growers across Britain. We want people to grow wherever they can - in flats, allotments, window boxes, community gardens, houseboats, and tower blocks - if there is space for sowing, get growing!
We think that growing food and saving seed is one of the most important things we can do to promote a healthy and biodiverse planet in which we all have a stake.
Join us on 14th October to celebrate seed saving. The programme will include the autumnal seed swap, a forum to converse and share seed-saving stories and knowledge, some food and a chance to see our brand new hand-built seed cleaning machine in action!
Swap seeds, meet other seed savers, exchange seed stories and spend some quiet time at the gardens.
If you have a large amount of seeds that need cleaning, please bring them in to be used in our seed-saving machine. In the future, our machine will be a shared resource for the community. Email: email@example.com if you would like to use the machine!
Your donations will contribute toward a ‘seed-fund’— initiated by the Seed Saving Network and Omved Gardens—for a local community group, allotment society and/or food-growing project, to begin or bolster their own seed saving journeys, be that through buying seeds, equipment, books, or however they need. We're not yet inviting expressions of interest for this fund but watch this space!
