Review of 2016 Seed Share


Old Town Hall, High Street Crediton GoogleMap

Sustainable Crediton held their popular annual Seed Share on Saturday 20th February at the Old Town Hall, Crediton from 11am to 2pm. There was no charge, only donations towards the costs of the day.

This year's seed share was exceptional.  Thanks to the hard work of our volunteers organising the day and those helping on the day, this was our best event yet, it was busy from beginning to end.

The stalls of Tiverton Beekeepers , Orchard Live, Herbs for Common Complaints, Composting and The Devon WildlifeTrust were surrounded by visitors keen to find out more. Visitors not only brought and took away seeds, they brought items for a give and take stall which had a flow of interesting books, plants and gardening equipment. Our bakers exceeded themselves bringing delicious cakes and soups while the Woodmen provided a lively musical background, both much to the enjoyment of everyone.

It was great to have so many visitors and if you came along we hope you will come back next year. If you didn't visit this year, do drop in next year and see what the event could hold for you. Seed saving information is on our website at So give it a try and bring your own saved seeds along to the next seed share.

A common belief is that everyone will already have the seeds you have. One gentlemen said just that and I pointed out not everyone would have everything yet. He replied 'surely no one would want these Echinacea seeds', when a nearby lady promptly exclaimed  - those are just what I was hoping to find! So do save your seeds - someone will love them.
