Spring SEED SWAP  Festival  2019
Saturday 30th March 12-4pm

Living Under One Sun Cafe,
Down Lane Park N17

All Welcome. Seeds to swap (bring some if you
have them), plants, surplus produce.
Tea and cake.

Station: Tottenham Hale. Buses 123, 230, 76, 41, W4

GIH is pleased to be working with Living Under One Sun and Friends of Down Lane Park to host this year’s spring seed swap. If you haven’t visited the LUOS cafe (which opened last year as Cafe Connect) this is a great opportunity to discover and support its welcoming comfy cafe, the outdoor bowling green — now developing impressively as an edible garden and secure play and exploration space for kids. Entrance free or by donation. Bring seeds to swap if you have spare — veges, herbs, ornamentals, wildflowers; if you don’t have spare seeds, come and get yourself a starter pack, learn about seed-saving and local growing projects.
