Seed Swap weekend

It's that time of the year when seed swap events appear. Alex will be running a stall on behalf of the allotment association at our local one this weekend at the Art House Cafe in Southampton - a fabulous vegetarian and vegan cafe run by volunteers, not for profit with gorgeous food and drink - you have to try their cakes if you ever go there, yum! It's the same place we were at recently meeting the Masai.

Organised by The Art House and October Books the Seed Swap will be open to the public from 12 - 5pm on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th February here. Bring along unwanted seeds to swap or you can pick up others for a donation, and there are other stalls their to look around too.

October Books - a lovely indepenent bookshop local to us,a not-for-profit co-operative, will be there too with a lovely choice of books, magazines, etc.  Beans and Herbs (from not fat away in Wiltshire) will be there too selling their seeds - great range of organic vegetables and herbs, including a large variety of beans.


  1. I wish I lived closer, I've never heard of any seed swap events near me.

  2. Hi Jo, what a shame. It all started in Brighton and has spread - there's a list of ones here but thee are probably more around too

  3. Thanks for the link. I've had a look but there's nothing anywhere near me. It's such a good idea though.

  4. I'm sure you are aware of the Unravel exhibition next weekend near Farnham. I can't wait to see all the beautiful yarns !

  5. Hello gris fleur, Yes, and I know some of the ladies attending and doing talks at Unravel. Will no doubt be a lovely time.


Don't be shy, come and say hello. Your thoughts are always appreciated, I read them all and will endeavour to respond. Thank you x
