Join in our annual seed-sharing session led by local gardeners who steward the Toxteth Seed Library! Pick up some free seeds to grow this spring and, if you can, bring your own seeds to share.
Our annual seed share is a really important event in the Squash growing year. We’re passionate about seeds. We’ve been building the Toxteth Seed Library since 2010 – a fundamental element of our 100 Year Vision for Windsor Street and neighbourhood. Come and meet the Squash gardeners, who are the seed keepers and caretakers of this great legacy.
Alongside the seed share, we will be joined by artist Angelica Vanasse who will be making seed packet art with us. So come along, get creative and make your own!
