Fabulous Festival!

seed donation A big warm thank you to all those who came and shared the first London Freedom Seed Bank Festival on Saturday 5th October 2013 at Passing Clouds.   We talked,  questioned, donated seeds, ate cake, sang, danced, re-met old friends and made new ones, and most of all celebrated the wonder of seeds and cherished the need to preserve their freedom.

Great big thanks go to Theresa from Gaia Foundation for putting this day into a global context so eloquently.  To Caroline David and Brina for beautiful and rousing music that led us all in shared voice.  To the Green Kite Ceilidh band who showed that no-one can resist dancing when a fiddle is at hand!  And to all the Freedom Seed Savers who gave seed saving a go this year – whether successfully or not. This is a journey of re-tuning in and working with nature in a way that many of us city dwellers may never have had opportunity to nurture. There’s always another year to have another go! 

We look forward to meeting with you again to distribute seeds on 1st March 2014 – watch this site for futher details.   Watch also for details of seed saving re-skilling workshops. 

Here are some more images of the Festival….
