Saving Seeds: Seed Packing
The Seed It Union


The Seed It Union returns to CCA following a successful seed saving day in December 2022. You can take part in a mixture of activities. 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. If you bring seeds, you will have the chance to say what you have brought and what they mean to you. Seeds have stories and we will have the chance to hear more about them.

Representatives from community gardens from across the north of Ireland will use this as an opportunity to meet to discuss their next steps as part of The Seed It Union and their year ahead. There will be a creative activity whereby you can make pictures using the seed residue. 

This is an in-person event, that will take place at CCA Derry~Londonderry, 10-12 Artillery Street, 1–5pm. It is a free, drop in session, suitable for all ages. No booking is required. All welcome.

The Seed It Union emerged from Food Security, through the Seed Saving & Exchange programme (FSSSE) set up by Social Farms & Gardens NI. SeedIt Union are supported by Necessity. You can read more about Social Farms and Gardens here.
