Middlesbrough’s second ever community seed exchange is being held as part of the drive to get people growing fresh, healthy produce.

Growers from across the town will meet on Sunday, April 10 to share a warm drink and swap seeds gathered from last year’s harvest.

Seedy Sunday is a joint venture between Middlesbrough Environment City and the Friends of Linthorpe Cemetery.

The event will take place at the Hebrew Prayer House on Ayresome Green Lane, opposite the site of the old General Hospital in Linthorpe between 12 and 2pm, and entry is free of charge.

Catherine Boyle, Middlesbrough Environment City’s Urban Farming Project Officer, said: “The first Seedy Sunday last year was a great event, a really fun opportunity to share not only seeds but tips, experiences and a little time with kindred spirits.

“It was so successful that we couldn’t resist the opportunity to repeat it. It’s the perfect excuse to take a little time out, look forward to the year ahead, and make plans for growing your own.”

To take part in the 2011 Seedy Sunday event, simply bring items that you would like to swap – harvested seeds or unwanted tools, for example – and turn up ready to exchange your goods for something you’ll find useful.

The Hebrew Prayer House is only a 10 minute walk from Linthorpe Village, which is served by most local bus services – those planning to attend are encouraged to use public transport, walk or bike to the event.
