This workshop will focus on sprouting. We will have samples of different sprouters, sample sprouts and there are some mason jars and sprouting seeds for those interested in starting sprouting (10) plus handouts on sprouting. Also we have herbs plants if anyone would like them!

The Whys and Wherefores of food cycles – why we want them, and how to get them. Plan round-the-calendar food supplies, both in the larder and stored in the garden. We’ll have the WENFN seed library there – you can get some free seeds for your garden or swap or donate seeds.
