Come and join us at the Skip Garden in Kings Cross to celebrate seeds, the first signs of the emerging Spring and the stirrings of new life. We will be growing, cooking, sprouting, swapping, creating, wondering and marvelling at the knowledge, qualities and life that seeds hold.
The London Freedom Seed Bank will be leading an Introduction to Seed Saving workshop (from 11:15-13:00) and distributing FREE SEEDS, grown and saved in London by members of our seed saver network.
