Sunday 19th May: seedling swapping 13:00 – 17:00 and bean workshop 14:00

Bring your seedlings, compare with the ones we’ve grown, swap with other Lambeth growers, chat and join in the swapping fun. Don’t worry if you haven’t sown any – we’ll have plenty of spares for you to take away. Find out more about how to get involved here

At 14:00 bean family expert Lulú Rico Arce presents fascinating facts and artefacts related to this enormous plant family. Come and see beautiful bean necklaces and the world’s largest pod – the tropical sea heart’s beanpods grow up to 1.5m long!
