I had such a fantastic day yesterday at the Seedy Sunday Seed Swap in Glastonbury. I was part of the organisation of the event, mostly doing the social media, and volunteered all day .
It was a great success and everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy it and it's plant-y mayhem!
We had many stalls, selling eco-friendly products, crafts and plants. Promotions tables included Friends of the Earth, Wildlife Trust Somerset and composting champions. We had foraged soup and plenty of homemade cakes to keep us going.
We heard talks from Carol Stone about How to Save your Seeds, Charles Dowding on No-Dig Gardening, and Steph Hafferty on Potions from the Garden. And a movie showing by Paul Stamets on how mushrooms will save the planet!
Outside we had mushroom log inoculation, willow basket weaving and fence making, activities with the Forest School, and a musical bike (the speaker powered by peddle!) There were also onion bhajis being cooked by biochar.
And of course, the Seed Swap itself, which was very successful. I myself got some seeds, so now its time to get planting!
