You can drop seeds off through the letter boxes at any of these addresses, please do not knock at the door.

If you have loads of seeds to donate please get in touch,  so we can arrange a direct pick up.

or message us on Facebook 

Please donate seeds ready to sow - that is shelled, de-husked or sieved rather than whole seed heads or pods.

If you can divide seeds up into packs suitable for one garden, for one year, that would save our volunteers a lot of time. We need to make every seed count and share them as widely as we can.

Paper packets are preferred over plastic as the virus lasts longer on plastic.

How to save seeds from "easy" vegetables and wild flowers Bristol’s well loved permaculture activist, Mike Feingold will be talking about how to save seed and why this is important. Mike has been at the centre of Bristol’s practical permaculture community for many years. He runs a thriving community orchard at Royate Hill, where he also has his own allotment.

Mike teaches on the Shift Bristol permaculture course and co- ordinates large teams of volunteers every year to run practical permaculture areas at festivals including Glastonbury Festival.

He’s also involved in redistributing unwanted food to communities in need across the city.

Mike’s talk will focus on seed saving from ‘easy’ vegetables, as well as saving wild seed. He’ll also touch on the politics of seed saving.
