It’s almost time for Seedy Saturday!

Get swapping...

Ah, March. The bringer of Spring, mad hares and the annual Seedy Saturday in North-East Somerset.

Now in its third year, Seedy Saturday (brought to you by Get Seedy!) is set to be bigger and more ‘spudtacular’ at Farmborough Memorial Hall (near Bath) on Saturday 10 March 2012 from 10am to 2pm.

There will be 80 plus varieties of potato available to buy individually alongside the increasingly popular seed swap this year, plus heritage and organic seeds, onions, shallots and garlic for sale from local merchants Pennard Plants, The Herbary, and Thomas Etty Esq.

In addition, there will be locally made preserves and crafts, home grown produce and plants, as well as homemade refreshments and home-grown entertainment from local Morris dancers for you to enjoy!

So come along, swap some seeds and find out something new about gardening, growing produce and living more sustainably through recycling, composting and sharing community resources.

What’s happening?
