On Tuesday, February 14, Eden’s Seeds, Soup and Sarnies programme will host a seed swap at Penwithick Community Hall from 11:30am until 3pm.

Along with swapping seeds, people can find out more about gardening, share growing stories and tips and sample homemade food.

There’ll also be storytelling and games for younger children.

Sarah Worne, Family Learning Coordinator at Cornwall Council, said: “It will be a great chance to get together and share each other’s experiences, as well as starting off the year with some new seeds and fresh ideas.”

Seeds, Soup and Sarnies is being piloted in the Cornwall china clay area and inner city Middlesbrough and is delivered in partnership by Eden, Cornwall Council’s Family Learning and ContinYou, along with a range of local organisations.

The project aims to encourage families to ‘plant, grow, cook, eat and share’ while learning new skills and strengthening community bonds.

The scheme is funded by the BIG Lottery Fund and will run until May.
