Deal Seedy Saturday 30th May

Deal With It’s  next Deal Seedy Saturday will be on Saturday 30th May between 11am to 1ish at the Landmark Community Garden Deal High St

The Seedy Saturday is a plant and seed swap – people are encouraged to bring or donate any extra plants they are growing (mainly edibles) and perhaps try something different to grow.

We also actively encourage people to try their hand at growing some fruit, herbs or veg. We have our experts there to share knowledge and get people started growing.

This edition of Seedy will also have stalls from The Chocolution, AnSugan Recycled accessories and The Wild Kitchen Foraging with Lucia Stuart.

We also have the Sunshine Ukes, Deal’s premier Ukulele band playing from Noon.

All this happens in the Landmark Garden on Deal’s celebrated High Street .

The community garden is run by volunteers from Deal With It (Deal’s local community Green Group) and has a wonderful array of edible & wildlife friendly native planting designed by our head gardener Imogen Kitching
