Southampton Seed Swap is a community seed swapping, gardening and environmental living event which happens every year in Southampton, Hampshire.
The next one will be on Sunday 1 March 2020, 12pm – 4/30pm.
Inspired by Seedy Sunday in Brighton, has been running since 2006.
The swap gives growers can choose seeds from dozens of traditional varieties of garden vegetables in return for a donation or in exchange for seed they have saved.
It’s also a great place to meet likeminded people, from newbie gardeners to people who have been giving away free courgettes by the tonne for years!
The seed swap is organised by Ziggy Woodward & her amazing crew at The Art House Southampton. Crew members include John Curtis, Paul Bickmore (Bik) & Jani Franck. Many thanks for your help, patience and persistence through the years!
Open-pollinated, ‘heritage’ varieties of seeds are often no longer commercially available, but have adapted naturally to local growing conditions. They also make for unusual, yummy and colourful additions to your garden and table!
Southampton Seed Swap is organised by volunteers and self-funded – donate to support the event now!
