Over the last few weeks, with the days getting longer and the weather (theoretically) getting warmer, our Wonder Women group have been starting to think about what to grow and when to sow! We've started by tomatoes, peppers, aubergines which like a longer season to grow in. Looking over our vast array of seeds we decided to see if anyone would like to share our bounty and set up a seed swapping event
We set about making signs for the different family groups / category of seeds we have, flowers, herbs, tomatoes and peppers etc. As well as making some beautiful stamps to print seed packets with on the day
We had lots of people come on the day of the swap, from other plot holders, too members of the public. It was great to see so many new faces and people using the community hut, taking part in seed packet printing, eating cake (Anne delicious courgette cake) drinking tea and coffee and of course rummaging through lots of lovely seeds deciding what to take home and plant.
Greening Stoke is a project run in partnership between Festival Stoke and Letting in the Light. We are based in Stoke-on-Trent.
We are starting this adventure in January 2021 in the middle of a national Lockdown. Until things change and begin to open up we are abiding by all the Covid-19 Government guidance and for the foreseeable future only Rachel and Anne will be working, in a socially distanced way, to prepare and maintain Plot 33 for when we can invite the community to work with us.
