1pm–4pm

Come join The Seed It Union as they save, process and package seeds from around the world. This will help the seeds localise and grow well in our environment. The seeds are agents of change, each year we can help the seeds grow well.

Leek and Bean seeds drying out in preparation for processing.

The event will be a mixture of activities, suitable for all ages. You will help process the seeds, including tomato, pumpkin, beans, leeks and lettuce. You will also get the chance to weigh and package the seeds for distribution to local community growing organisations. There will also be a series of activities to get involved with using the seeds in creative ways. This free event forms part of the Public Programme for the exhibition Fugitive Seeds.

The Seed It Union will be using this as an opportunity to meet to discuss their next steps. This is an in-person event, that will take place at CCA Derry~Londonderry, 10-12 Artillery Street. It is a free, drop in session, suitable for all ages. No booking is required.
