REPORT: Seedling Swap

We came from Bungay by bus and Hethersett by bicycle (and from quite close by, by car - but with very heavy boxes). The list of plants we swapped was huge: kale for valerian, quinces for sunflowers, squashes for raspberries; tomatoes, Slovak white peppers, lettuces, aubergines, datura, feverfew, chillies and much more.

The Playhouse kindly hosted us and brought lilies and mint to the swap, happily taking away chillies and basil.

It was a fun, relaxed day. We chatted with friends old and new. Some people heard about Transition Norwich for the first time, others had been with us since the Unleashing.

It felt good, to be sharing something of ourselves, these tiny plants we'd nurtured from seeds - in airing cupboards and on windowsills; and to share our pleasure and our passion with other plant lovers.

To give freely, to share and receive, and to plant something in hope. A symbol for Transition. (Elena, Food & Farming/TN2)
