Seedy Saturdays and Sundays 2017
After a long grey winter, there's nothing more exciting than the prospect of spring gardening. Not only do the Island's early spring gardening events mark the beginning of the season of green, they are also a fantastic opportunity to network with others, to learn more about seed saving, sustainability and local food security. Swap some seeds...and some stories!
