Exeter Seed Bank is holding Sunday afternoon workshops on 27 November, 15 January and 12 February at Exeter Phoenix.
The sessions offer the opportunity bring along and take away seeds to parcel them up in preparation for Exeter Seed Bank’s first ever seed swap on 26 February at Maketank.
Exeter Seed Bank aims to share knowledge about seed saving, an ancient craft that is being revived in the face of diminishing seed diversity.
It is creating a seed bank that works in local soils and takes into account other issues such as biodiversity loss and climate change.
It aims to hold organic, heirloom or heritage flower and vegetable seeds, with wildflower mixes to increase the presence of pollinators.
It also programmes events that follow the seed calendar and creatively engage people with the natural world while encouraging environmental stewardship.
The Exeter Seed Bank workshops run from 2-4pm on Sunday 27 November, Sunday 15 January and Sunday 12 February at Exeter Phoenix.
They are free to attend. Book places via the Exeter Phoenix website.
