Lampeter Seed Library was launched in Autumn 2017 after two introductory public seed saving workshops, and is open twice monthly at the People’s Market in Victoria Hall, Lampeter, Ceredigion. It is a free public resource run by volunteers who are all keen growers. Our aim is to build a stock of seeds for vegetables and cereals proven to grow well in our local climate and conditions, which anyone can use to grow their own food and hopefully learn to save the seed.
Our hope is that this will introduce more people to the fun of successful food growing and seed saving, broaden the range of food we know we can grow here, introduce people to new veg they haven’t tried before, and generally increase local food resilience and biodiversity.
This is a short film I put together to help spread the message, please feel free to share it on again:
When we first came
To the place of the high oaks
He was nowhere to be seen.
The turning of the soil
Summoned him, as if
The lifting of the first morning’s eyelid
Summons the sunrise in the East.
His sweet song serenaded us
Amongst the fallen trees
And I knew that he had come.
