Streatham Common Community Garden – sowing and swapping events

logo2Sowing  seeds: Sunday 7th April 12 – 4

We will have some seeds, compost, pots,  advice and encouragement. It’ll be great if you are able to take extras to grow on at home, or get your own packets and then bring back then for the grand SWAP on 19th May. This is for the Chelsea Fringe:  a great day of swapping and coming together all over the borough

We’d like to see lots of chat about the different varieties and hear your top tips and experience, as well as favourite recipes for a book we’ll be putting together.

We’ll also be making windowsill reflectors which will help you grow strong and straight plants. Be prepared to get sticky-taped! Bring a shoe box, photocopy paper box – both with their lids – or similar. We’ll have some spares and all the materials you need too.

Swapping seedlings: Sunday 19th May 12 – 4

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 http://bandstandbeds.org.uk/whats-it-all-about/
