The third annual ‘Seedy Saturday’ event is being held in the Moor on Saturday 21 March 2009 from 10am-1pm.
Organised by Transition Falmouth, the event is for anyone interested in growing their own vegetables and herbs. People will be able to swap seeds and seedlings and also get some valuable information about plants and growing.
Sarah Bunker, member of Transition Falmouth said
“As the recession bites, many of us are starting to grow our own food, whether in our gardens, in council allotments or the new private allotments which are springing up to meet demand – it’s an exciting time for the ‘Grow Your Own’ movement! Seed swap events like this help us keep old varieties alive, and build up a healthy bank of seeds which are suited to local conditions.”
People are invited to share and swap any excess seeds or seedlings they have, whether commercial varieties or ones they have saved and grown themselves. There will also be a limited number of seeds to give away.
The Seedy Saturday stall will have information about growing vegetables and saving seeds, and you can find out about local allotments, garden share schemes, composting and organisations which support growers, both locally and nationally.
