Friday 9th February 2024 – 6.30pm-8pm

Are you tired of spending a fortune on seeds every planting season? Or are you looking for a way to diversify your garden without breaking the bank? Look no further because the upcoming Seed Swap event at Walford Village Hall is just what you need!

The Seed Swap event allows gardeners and plant enthusiasts to come together to exchange seeds, knowledge, and ideas. This event is not only a great way to save money on seeds, but it also promotes sustainable gardening practices.

The concept of seed swapping is simple – bring your extra seeds, trade them for other seeds, and go home with a diverse collection of seeds for your garden. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved. Not only do you get to try out new varieties of plants, but you also get to connect with other like-minded individuals in your community. Entry is free and refreshments are available for a contribution to the Howle Hill Memorial fund. More information on the project is available here: Howle Hill Memorial Project – Walford Parish Council

So, mark your calendars for the Seed Swap and join us in celebrating sustainability and community. Let’s come together to create a more resilient and sustainable future, one seed at a time. See you there!
