Keen gardeners and even those with not-so-green fingers are invited to come along to a Spring growing celebration and seed swap, this Saturday 22nd March in Tooting. The event will aim to show how easy it can be to grow your own produce, even if you don’t have a garden or allotment.

Event organizer Jenny Teasdale said: “Anyone can grow food and flowers, whether you have a garden, a balcony or just a windowsill. We want local people to come along on Saturday to learn about growing, to share their expertise and seeds, and to meet new friends and neighbours.”
There will also be free activities on the day including story telling, papermaking, flower making and seed sowing.
You don’t have to be an expert gardener to attend or even have anything to swap. Tooting Community Garden are donating seeds and seedlings, many of which if started now, will produce vegetables in time for Tooting Foodival, the annual festival, now in its 7th year, celebrating locally grown food, cooked by local restaurants and served up free to the community, which will take place 13-14th September.
The Spring growing celebration will take place in the Mushkil Aasaan community space at 222 Upper Tooting Road from 2-4pm. We hope to see you there.
