Over 80 people attended our seed swap at the Garden Museum on 27 January 2018 – it was a big success.
There were four themed swapping/sharing tables which were primed with slightly out-of-date seeds donated by Franchi Seeds and then added to by attendees.
We also had guest appearances from Esiah Levy who brought painted sweetcorn and a couple of varieties of pumpkin, and the Freedom Seed Bank who encourage people to save seed and reduce their dependence on bought seeds.
Pam Warhurst, founder of the Incredible Edible movement also popped her head in.
And of course we were in the fantastic Garden Museum so IEL members could use their free membership cards to look around at the exhibits. Thankyou to Janine, Learning Officer at the Garden Museum, we look forward to working together again soon.
Janine also facilitated our Blooming Lambeth photo exhibition, which has been on display since the beginning of December, but was taken down after the seed swap.
Thank you also to Nikki and Jodie who volunteered to help on the day, having never volunteered at an IEL event before. It was great to spend time with you.
