Preamble: Its very easy to lose heart, lose enthusiasm and to lose hope – if you only watch mainstream media. Its my aim, with ‘a little help from my friends’ to bring more whimsy into the world through the medium of gardening; growing your own food, sharing your surpluses, upcycling shiny things to bring a smile to peoples faces… to start making some sort of sense in this world, to find a purpose, to share inspiration where i find it and hopefully others will feel that they can do this too – feel empowered.
Or is the above just a very well seasoned word salad? If you have no clue what i am going on about, or have something to add, please do drop me a line, or two. Please, though, let’s remain civil 🙂
I am very proud and chuffed to bits to present Southampton Seed Swap 2019 – which is happening on Sunday 3rd March, 12pm-5pm at the Art House Gallery Cafe (upstairs, so alas is not wheelchair accessible)*
*although i am sure we can make arrangements for though who have difficulty with stairs, we’re very friendly and helpful at the art house xx**
A recap for the newbie/garden curious amongst us… the seed swap works thus
a) you have seeds to swap – many many seeds!! You packet them up, label them and bring them along – yay!! you swap packet for packet!!
b) you don’t have seeds! Do not despair!! Seeds will be available for a donation (30p per packet, 4 for £1)
The more people that attend (with seeds hopefully) the more there will be to swap, and the more to donate!
So please pretty please spread the word – tell your chums, shout it from the rooftops –
Come and join us for a tea-drenched, cake-filled whimsical afternoon – and start your gardening adventure!
For those at the back – here is the FB website, if that is your jam (apricot please with some warm vegan croissants and a cuppa tea xxx)
