Seedy Sunday event is a multi-faceted swap shop!

The seventh annual Foxton Seedy Sunday event is taking place at the village’s Robert Monk Hall this Sunday.

The event is a chance for people to swap seeds, seedlings, cuttings and even full grown plants for garden offerings brought along by other gardeners.

People who bring along a packets of seeds get in for free.

These seeds are exchanged for vouchers and the vouchers are then swapped for different seeds, seedlings or cuttings. Those without seeds can get in for £1.

There will be a variety of stalls, all booked by county enterprises concerned with care of the environment – with many inspirational carbon footprint-saving ideas.

These include the Mors bag team, the Harborough Environmental Team, county council master composters and gardeners, Coton Manor gardeners, a restored garden tools stall, the Kibworth-based Leicestershire Wildlife Hospital, Sustainable Harborough, a bee expert from the Leicestershire and Rutland Bee Keeping Association, Harborough’s Edible16 group and many others.

Cakes, tea and coffee will also be available, being organised by Transition Town Harborough, and savouries from Farrhinheit Foods.

The event runs from 2pm until 4pm.
