Spring clean your seeds at community event
Oswaldtwistle residents are invited to a Seed Swap weekend next month at Rhyddings Park Kitchen Garden.
The event, which takes place Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 March between 2-4pm, has been organised by Newground, in partnership with Friends of Rhyddings Park and Hyndburn Council.
Gardening Coach Chloe Ellis said: “Swapping seeds with friends and other gardeners in your neighbourhood is a great way to increase the variety of what you grow, as well as a good opportunity to exchange gardening tips.”
Ann and Robert Warrington, from Friends of Rhyddings Park, said: “We are really enjoying watching the kitchen garden develop and the community working with Joanne and Chloe within it. We are excited to see the beauty spring will bring in the kitchen garden as it blossoms and blooms – seed swapping is new to us but we are keen to learn more and meet the seed swappers.”
Hyndburn Council Deputy Leader, Cllr Paul Cox said; “This is a great idea to expand your range of plants to grow and a chance to meet others in the new kitchen garden at Rhyddings to have a chat and pick up more useful gardening tips.”
If you don’t have any seeds to swap, there will also be seed packages for sale. If you are unable to attend the event but would like to donate some seeds, please contact Joanne on 07701 312277 or Chloe on 07747 764898.
