We’ve been doing it for years, coming together at markets, town squares, in huts and in halls to swap seeds, plants and stories. The Seed Swap at the Rediscovery Centre, can include locally saved seeds, heritage seeds, open pollinated seeds, hybrid seeds, and excess bought seeds. You decide what you want to swap.
We're excited at the Rediscovery Centre because seed swaps offer the opportunity to cultivate a network of people interested in ongoing seed projects and to collectively develop and share seed that supports a more diverse and resilient local food supply.
This event is perfect for, non-gardeners, new gardeners, experienced seed savers who want to connect and expand their collections. It's perfect whether you have a flower pot, a balcony, waste ground, a small garden, a large garden, a community garden, a school garden or just an interest in finding out more. Come along - we're here all day to swap and chat. Registration isn't mandatory and you can still participate even if you don't have any seeds to swap.
Any left over seeds will be donated to the Trinity Comprehensive School in Ballymun Biovidersity programme.
We look forward to seeing you here.
