yes that time again
anyone up for helping to organise a seed swap? i have lots of seeds from last still as well.
as we have no place just yet i was thinking of having it at ace unless anyone has a suggestion.
date... a weekend in a few weeks. do you think a saturday or sunday best?
ideas of who else could be invited to join in?
please can people save their egg boxes, for seed trays so we can do some planting on the day.
cheers
simone

Yay!
I can get you boxes from the Tree (cue 'The Circle of Life'). How many do you need? :)
(and they're pink! very pink!)

On it, asked a few pals to keep their boxes as well.

Checked today as I wasn't sure of the quantity, they're 6 x 6 boxes (36 eggs-each trays). And they're pink.
I'll save them, then :)

hi
the seed swap has been booked at ACE for sunday 8th april 2-5pm.
i shall try and get a poster done but if someone could put it on the webpage and facebook now for some prior warning that would be good.
it will be a chance to swap seeds, seedlings, plants, gardening bits and bobs. tea and coffee is available for a donation towards ACE. i shall get some tea and milk as well. you don't need to bring anything, will just be nice to see everyone.

also if there are lots of plants left maybe we could do some guerilla gardening with them afterwards!
