Local Food Wanaka Seed Swap

27 September 2017

All are welcome to come along to the Local Food Wanaka Seed Swap, on Friday 29th September, 4.30pm – 7.30pm, at the Lake Wanaka Centre (Faulks room). Koha donation on the door. This is an opportunity to meet fellow gardeners and swap your favourite vegetable seeds and seedlings with each
other.

It’s also an opportunity for experienced gardeners to share knowledge and tips with those starting out, as there is always more to learn when it comes to growing your own! Last year vegetable seeds of all types were swapped along with tomato seedlings and young fruit and nut trees.

You don’t need to have your own seeds to come along as there will be plenty to share amongst everyone, including free seeds on the door!

Locally grown seeds are the best adapted for our challenging climate and soils, and enable selection for taste and beauty.

Local Food Wanaka is a group of local volunteers who are passionate about promoting the use and consumption of locally grown food, reducing our environmental impact and increasing resilience.

Events are run throughout the year, including the autumn apple drive where locally foraged apples are turned en-mass into chutneys, fresh apple juice and cider! If you are passionate about local food and keen to volunteer, or have ideas for future events please get in touch.

Contact details and more information about Local Food Wanaka can be found on their facebook and wordpress page, search for ‘Local Food Wanaka’. For more information about the Seed Swap please give Doug a call on: 022 068 5257.

Room hire costs have been partially funded by the Queenstown Lake District Council, thanks to them for their support for this event.
