Seed swap-smCalling all Vegetable Gardeners

Take the opportunity to extend the range of vegetables you grow by bringing surplus seeds to our Seed Swap and getting others in exchange.

The Foxlowe gardeners organise a series of seed swaps each spring (Feb-April) supported by Transition Leek.  The aim is to help to cut gardening costs and avoid seed wastage, while increasing the range of crops that gardeners can grow.  It is also a great opportunity for gardeners to get together and talk about their favourite (or otherwise) plants.  Half packets and saved seeds are welcome, as are jars of homemade jam and chutney.

There will be direct swaps between 11.00 am and 1.30 pm but after that individual packets can be taken without the need for a swap.  Surplus stock will be saved at the end of each event for the following one but, after the third event is over, all remaining stock will be given away on Moorlands Freecycle.

This event coincides with both the Sunday Supplement market and the Classic Film, so it is possible to attend all three in a single outing.
