Bring your seeds

The Perth Hills and Wheatbelt Seed Savers Network will have a seed swap-box at the Kalamunda Garden Festival.

If you have healthy, viable seeds, bring them along. You’ll be able to share them, swap them and spread the love. Take your seeds to the Daisy Chain Eco Nursery stall.

Fiona Blackham will be presenting a free talk at 9:30am about collecting, saving and sharing seed.

We’re trying to get some momentum behind a seed library in Kalamunda. Hopefully the Kalamunda Garden Festival and our lovely festival-goers, can make a difference and progress things a little.
