Seedy Sunday, here we come!

Isn't it remarkable how gardening swaps can look very similar?

This year, Empty Common Community Garden will have a stall at Seedy Sunday. If you don't know about this annual Cambridge seed swap, here is the event information from Transition Cambridge's website:

Trumpington Seedy Sunday
 25 January 2015, 13:30-16:00
 Village Hall, High Street, Trumpington CB2 9HZ

Swap seeds with other gardeners. If you don't have any spare seeds, don't worry, just take seeds in exchange for a small donation. As well as the seed swap, there will be a special preview of the new film 'Seeds of Justice' from the Gaia Foundation, and a talk from organic growing expert Valerie Muir of Valerie's Veggies, plus stalls, a children's activity, and tea and cakes from Trumpington W.I. Entry £2 adults (children free).

Many of us have been there before with packets of seeds harvested from our garden or extra packets we bought but didn't get round sowing. This year we will have a stall so aside our individual contributions, we are bringing in communal offerings. I hope it will also be a chance to meet up and 'put names to faces'!
