Seed Saving Evening

Lettuce_seedheads_4

Did you know that in the past 80 years we have lost 93% of the world’s seed varieties? This directly affects us and our diets, as it means that the diversity of food available to us is also being lost. The big drivers in all this loss are the large seed companies who are franchising seeds and actually making it illegal (yes, illegal!) to save seeds if you intend to sell them on. London Freedom Seedbank thinks this is iniquitous and they are quietly working away to create an amazing seedbank for Londoners’  use. They want to spread the word about how to seed save. Come along and find out!

Incredible Edible Lambeth is collaborating with the London Freedom Seed Bank and the South London Botanical Institute to create an action packed evening of interest to all gardeners! We will be learning from experts how to seed save and why it’s important.

SLBI is co-hosting this event with us in their beautiful building – worth a visit if you’ve never been there!

Save the date for what will be an inspiring evening.
