2020 Community Seed Exchange

Our Community Seed Exchange is one of our biggest events of the year. We are inviting individuals, gardening and community groups to come together and share / swop your seeds. From the rare to the everyday varieties, this event helps promote biodiversity and by sharing these seeds we are also building a more resilient food system.

A lot of work, care, harvesting and of course eating lays ahead for the coming season but it all begins with a seed.

As a pop up event ecologist Ted Cook will be hosting a “walk and talk” gathering, culminating in a tree planting ceremony. Full itinerary below.

Bring your friends and family and enjoy a walk through our twenty acres of Organic Seed Gardens, Heritage Orchards and Native Woodland trails. On the day we will have a selected menu in our cafe and our Cob Pizza Oven will be fired up.
