We hope you are enjoying the Spring so far!
Our first two trainings took place in mid-March and were well appreciated by everyone who attended. Thank you to Charlotte Haworth who led the first training at Oasis Nature Garden in Stockwell. Charlotte has posted an online version of the training on her blog, so please check out this excellent resource, complete with beautiful diagrams! A big thanks also to Natalie Mady who was the trainer at Glengall Wharf Garden Seedy Sunday event. Lots of seeds from the bank were distributed at the end of the trainings, and we are looking forward to celebrating the freedom seed savers as they return of some of this seed to the bank at our yearly festival towards the end of the year.
