At our next Open Meeting, at 7.30pm on Wednesday 18th May at Fleetville Community Centre, members of the Home Grown Food Group are organising the sharing of vegetable plants, seedlings etc.
The young plants & seedlings available are likely to include: tomatoes, lettuce, courgettes, celery and celery leaf, globe artichokes, runner beans, sea kale, broccoli, watercress, melons and various herbs.
Do come and take some away – you might go home with ideas about experimenting with growing something new. Do also bring spare seedlings if you have any.
We will provide written information on the care of seedlings and harvesting of crops, and the evening includes a question and answer session where growers will share their experiences and knowledge of growing the plants on offer.
We shall be asking for a small donation for any seedlings taken away, to enable us to produce more in the future, and to buy compost.
A small number of containers will be available to take away the plants, but you might like to bring some of your own too (e.g. recycled yoghurt pots).
Whether you are new to growing your own food or an experienced grower with ideas to share, the Home Grown Food Group looks forward to seeing you on 18th May.
UPDATE: you can read a brief report on the evening here.
