Totnes Seed Swap 2014

Totnes Seed Swap 2014

My first time at a Seep Swap

Next Saturday (15th Feb) my local Seed Swap takes place. It’s organised by the Seedy Sisters as part of the Transition Town Totnes project.

I spent the rainy day yesterday catching up on some reading. With the looming budget crisis of the wedding I have had to curb my gardening book addiction. I registered with the local council library service (a very simple and straightforward process now online with the ability to reserve and order books from any Devon library to be delivered to the local branch – when did libraries get so modern?). The smell of the library took me back to primary school when I was registered in my little village branch. I’ve started working my way through my leftover Christmas book wish list.

Yesterday’s entertainment was provided by Sue Stickland and her Back Garden Seed Saving book. Interestingly the copy I had ordered from the library was initially donated to the library by the Transition Town project – the circle of life! It’s got me excited about the concept of local provenance in seed gene banks and locally adapted strains.

I have never been to a seed swap before so I’m very excited. As with most events of this kind the more people who turn up and participate the better I imagine so if you’re in the area follow the links on this page and go along.

 

UPDATE: See how I got on
