The seed swap, which aims to foster local food production and sharing, takes place at The Old Chemist on Saturday, March 16 from 10am to 2pm.

A diverse array of seeds, including vegetables, herbs, and flowers, as well as small plants, can be exchanged.

Participants are encouraged to bring packaged and labelled seeds to exchange, or make a small donation if they don't have seeds to share.

Refreshments will be provided, and kids can come too and get their faces painted.

Growing Places is a Transition Southampton project, with funding from Transition Towns.
