Grow Sheffield runs seasonal workshops which connect people with each other and the growing calendar throughout the year. You will see some examples of this in recent projects such as Fruit Tree Planting, Fruit Tree Pruning as part of the Abundance project. Anyone can come along to these whether they are new to growing or have lots of experience to share.
We will be expanding this programme in 2011 so keep an eye on the News page for updates.

Seed Swaps are an opportunity for local gardeners and growers to meet up to share and exchange seeds they have saved: keeping unusual varieties alive and saving traditional crops from extinction and passing on heirloom seeds that have been adapted to local growing conditions. Gardeners and growers have always known the value of saving their own seed and passing them on to their friends and fellow growers. This event is a chance to be part of a bigger network of seed-savers. Seedy Saturday and Sundays are now happening across the UK (

What is so important about seeds? Seeds have are a symbol of wealth and renewal. They represent hope for the future, resilience, a concentrated store of value. Seeds are the most valuable crop we can grow. Many people are worried about the issues involved with seeds, such as the monopolisation of the market by chemical companies or the introduction of genetically-modified strains.
