Save your seeds! Save the date! “SEEDY SUNDAY” on the Isle of Wight
Sunday 10th February 2019 10.30 - 4pm at ASPIRE in Dover Street, Ryde
Come and share in a community seed swap aimed at promoting growing great things in our own locality; listen to experts giving hints and tips; enjoy home-made refreshments in the café; join in a variety of activities linked to growing all types of plants (including some activities especially for children) and browse a variety of stalls.
Bring along seeds you have saved for the seed swap table – envelopes to save your seeds are available from all libraries on the island and can be delivered back there for collection prior to the date or just brought along on the day – and take away some different seeds to grow yourself.
Tell your family and friends too.
