PLANT & SEED SWAP
Our annual Seedy Saturday and weekly Plant & Seed swaps in the summer are a great way to meet keen growers and to get started - even if it's just lettuces on a window sill or a tomato plant on a patio.
The Plant, Seed and Produce swap is held every Saturday during the summer between 10am and midday (ish) at St Bartholomew's churchyard, as long as the weather isn't atrocious.
If you can help out on the stall every now and again between 10am and midday on Saturdays, we'd love to hear from you. Otherwise just come down and swap your spare plants and courgette gluts for something new!
If you've got any spare plant pots (especially small ones) we will gratefully take them off your hands. Likewise if you need containers to pot up any seedlings, runners or cuttings from your garden, we may have some donated by another swapper.
Cloches from recycled street lights
Thanks to Southern Electric and Cornwall Council, Transition Lostwithiel was been able to obtain shades from the street lights which were replaced last year with low energy versions.
The sky's the limit as to what uses these can be put to! They are in 3 sizes and made really good cloches.
The water butts and containers were free from Scrapstore of which Transition Lostwithiel is a member. Individuals can join too.
The Plant & Seed Swap stall is a place to swap spare seeds, seedlings and plants. We ask people who do not have anything to swap to make a donation for the plants they take away. After the final swap of the year we split the donations with St Bart's and Transition Lostwithiel projects. Read more about what donations are spent on.
