Have you heard about A Celebration of Seeds at Rich Mix on Wednesday 1st February? Folks from the London Freedom Seed Bank will be going along to find out more and to show support for this exciting new community resource.
What’s going on?
A day of talks, workshops, films and food to celebrate the launch of the Connected Seeds Library, exhibition and book.
The day offers opportunities for networking with experienced and novice growers around east London, stalls, free vegetarian lunch and exhibition tours. Come along to learn about seed-saving, seed sovereignty, and community growing spaces.
Combined with the Tower Hamlets Food Growing Network’s Winter Gathering, this event is the culmination of an 18- month community research project based at Queen Mary University of London and Spitalfields City Farm exploring new technology to support urban agriculture in east London. The research produced a Connected Seeds Library, which is an interactive community resource that links the seeds within to the stories of the east London growers who grew and donated them. The library will be on display in the cafe gallery at Rich Mix, along with photographs and audio documenting the research process.
In the evening, you are invited to walk over to nearby Spitalfields City Farm for the book launch, herbal drinks and music.
