Seedy Sunday took place at Trumpington Village Hall, Trumpington, Cambridge CB2 9HZ on 20th January 2013, 1:30-4:00pm. Entry fee £1.50 -- children free.
Come along to Seedy Sunday and swap or collect some new veg and flower seeds for the coming season. You can donate your own saved seeds or surplus packets of bought seed if you have any, but there's always plenty of seeds for everyone so come along even if you don't have any seeds to swap. You can also buy heritage seed varieties or make a donation to the Heritage Seed Library for varieties they preserve and promote. This popular annual event has something for everyone; as well as talks and a film (see below), CamBake will be offering some of their delicious seed-inspired breads, children can sow their own egg box seed garden, and there will be refreshments provided by Trumpington WI. Organised in conjunction with Trumpington Allotment Society.
Valerie Muir - of Valerie’s Veggies and Plants
I am a retired medical pathologist and lifelong grower. I have had a small market garden near Bishops Stortford for 16 years, which is fully organic now for 7 years, Soil Association certified. I grow veg, fruit, nuts, herbs and garden plants all of which are for sale. I also teach organic gardening and growing. I love growing plants from seed and currently have a large productive apple tree grown from a 'Discovery' seed.
Seeds of Freedom highlights the story of seed - from its roots at the heart of traditional diversity-rich farming systems around the world, to the ways that seeds are being turned into a commodity and used to monopolise the global food system.
Pippa Vine - Transition Cambridge will talk about how her garden has developed since she participated in Growzones in 2010 and the benefits of Permaculture design.
If you have seeds you have saved or packets you are unable to use please bring them but this is not essential.
