Prepare your Garden for Spring at the Downham Seed Swap

Do you grow your own food or flowers, or would like to start?

From 9am – 1pm on Saturday 2nd March the Downham Market and Villages in Transition group are holding a Free Seed Swap.

The idea behind the Seed Swap is that people can exchange seeds they don’t want for seeds they do! Buying seeds can be an expensive business – so it makes sense to pair up with other keen gardeners and save a little money in the process.

  • Bring along saved seed to swap and get more information on how to save your own.
  • Make a put and plant a seed.
  • If you don’t have spare seeds, come along anyway!

The event will be taking place at the Food Co-operative Stall near the clock tower.
