There’s just one week to go before the deadline to apply to become a Seed Buddy!
Seed Buddies form an important part of the Seed Bank’s network. They receive FREE training, access to rare and unusual seeds from the Seed Bank’s collection, and play an important role in helping to raise awareness of the role of seed saving at community growing spaces across London.
Successful applicants will take part in a one-day training programme on Saturday 22nd October at the Regent’s Park Allotment Garden (10:30-16:00). The training day will be lead by expert seed savers from the Heritage Seed Library and will include:
– Seed saving techniques: theory and ‘how to’ with different plants
– Planning your space for seed saving
– Small-scale storage techniques
After the training day, the Seed Buddies will be required to support/mentor two community gardens in saving their own seeds.
If you have any questions or are interested in taking part, then we would love to hear from you! To download a copy of the application form go to www.capitalgrowth.org/buddy_scheme/ or to ask any questions email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for applications is Monday 3rd October at 12pm.
