Seedy Sunday is fast approaching; read on for details of their online talk and how to get hold of community seeds this year.
As part of the event this year, Seedy Sunday Brighton is joining forces with Lewes Seedy Saturday to host an inspiring talk about seed saving, growing food, and building resilient growing communities with Vivien Sansour. Seed Stories is a live Zoom talk with Q&As on Saturday 30th January 5pm to 6pm. Tickets are £3 and can be booked on Eventbrite.
It’s not too late to apply for one of their 300 ‘variety packs’ of seeds. The lucky dip of 10 packets includes a collection of vegetables, herbs and flowers you might grow in your garden or on the allotment. Here’s how to do it using their ‘click and collect’ method in partnership with Infinity Foods.
Step 1: Register using <<< Seedy Sunday Seed Application Form >>> by Friday 29thJanuary. Applications are limited to 300 on a first come first served basis, so don’t delay!
Step 2: If you are in the first 300, Seedy Sunday will email you to let you know.
Step 3: Drop into Infinity Foods shop (25 North Rd, Brighton, BN1 1YA) between Monday 8th to Sunday 28th February, give them your name to tick off their list, and you’ll get your variety pack.
If you run a community group that usually has a stall at Seedy Sunday, the group is able to offer local community groups, community gardens, etc a larger amount of seeds. All you need to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org and they’ll get in touch to agree how to get your seeds safely delivered to you.
