May 2021: Funding for our first Seed Library Project
We have just received funding to set up Edinburgh Seed Network’s first community Seed Library Project. It will be hosted by the Salisbury Centre in Newington.
As well as setting up a physical collection of seeds, we will be running a programme of regular events including weekly volunteering sessions, practical skills workshops, storytelling events, film-screenings and creative explorations of all things seed.
April 2021: First Open Meeting
Edinburgh Seed Network held our first Open Meeting on 2nd April 2021. Our regular Open Meetings allow home and community growers to share ideas and make connections around seed in Edinburgh. In our first Open Meeting, we had shout-outs from a range of projects and initiatives, we contributed to a map that is now available on our resources page, and shared visions for the network for 2022 and 2025. Take a look at what we shared in the gallery below.
