Better Food Café, Sevier Street, St Werburghs, BS2 9LB
Free event

We’re hosting a Spring Growth Workshop and Seed Swap at Better Food, and we’d like to invite you and all your allotment growers to our seed swap too, being held on Thursday 5th March.

Things kick off at 5pm with some seed swapping (another chance to get those ones you wanted but missed!), followed by talks and Q&A until 6:40pm with Ben Raskin, horticulture expert at Soil Association, and Amanda Pitt, city gardener extraordinaire.  They’ll speak about creating the best start for your seeds, from composting to germination, as well as techniques for maximizing on space and resources for city growing.  Meet other growing folk and share your spare seeds, including donated seeds from Better Food seed supplier Kings Seeds.

As well as swapping seeds, and getting great advice, participants will be able to stock up in store with 10% off gardening goods for the evening.  The event is free but we are welcoming donations to support the Save Our Seeds initiative, working to protect the purity of seeds against GMO.
