The Green Camp (GC) Seed Bank’s first seed swap event will take place on the 15th of July 2015. GC Seed Bank committee member Coral Vinsen has invited the community seed bank members to visit her garden and bring seeds to share. Coral has been growing and saving vegetable seed for many years and is very willing to share what she has. She’ll will provide some refreshment and also demonstrate a bag garden, which is a great way to plant veggies for those without much space &/or limited sunny space.
We earmarked 15 July for 10:30am for the visit. If you would like to come along rsvp: greendelwyn[@]gmail.com. Coral is based in Durban North, Kwa-ZuluNatal, South Africa. Once you rsvp we’ll provide you with Coral’s full address.
