This drop-in session will coincide with the NEC Green Gate Farm sales. A great chance to check out or buy some of the organic farm produce, which is sold each Thursday afternoon from 2pm – 6pm.

List of seeds in the seed bank – vegetables first and flowers and herbs following.
Here’s our latest inventory of seeds in our seed bank (click to view as a PDF).
We encourage members to use the lists to identify the seed they would like to access (take home, grow, save again, share & return!) and also opportunities to expand or renew the seed bank by contributing seed we don’t currently have or are running low on.
For those who missed our pumpkin night in May, three generous members have shared their notes with us. Thanks Anna, Thea and Cathy!
