Seed Sharing Saturday returns to Bedford town centre

The third annual Seed Sharing Saturday takes place at the Bunyan Meeting Free Church on 3rd March.

 

The free event brings green fingered enthusiasts together and provides a fun and friendly atmosphere to meet new people as well as swapping seeds as well as tips to improve your garden or allotment. 

 

Organised by Bedford Borough Council, BTCV, Zero Carbon Castle and Mile Road Allotments, the previous two events have seen an increasing number of visitors and stalls taking part. It is hoped that this year will be the biggest yet, with stalls run by various In Bloom groups from around the borough as well as groups and organisations supporting the In Bloom ethic. As well as free seeds and advice, there will be a free food tasting stall of home-made fare, honey products from a local beekeeper, talks on Bedford’s famous Laxton Bros and local orchards, a local Veg Box scheme and free activities for kids.

 

Councillor Sarah Jayne Holland, Portfolio Holder for Community and Regulatory Services, said: “Seed Sharing Saturday has proven itself to be a family friendly and popular event for a wide range of people. From those looking to grow their own food to anyone who likes to do a bit of gardening in their spare time.

 

“It promises to be another fun, friendly event for all and I am hopeful the third Seed Sharing Saturday will prove to be the most popular yet.”

 

Seed Sharing Saturday takes place on Saturday 3rd March at the Bunyan Meeting Free Church, Mill Street between 11am and 2pm.
