A number of the blogs this week are alerts to add some fantastic events to your diaries. A whole raft of inspiring events are being planned at Applewood Permaculture Centre, and here (below) we have early notification about Hereford’s fabulous Seed Swap.
As you will see if you glance at the HGN website home page all of these dates are also on our Calendar – meaning that anyone planning an event can easily see what else is happening around the county on the date they have chosen.
If you already use gmail or Google Calendar you can easily share your own dates with others around Herefordshire. Simply send firstname.lastname@example.org an invitation to your Calendar. I can then duplicate your events onto the HGN Calendar – and hey presto! there they are for everyone on the network to see.
If you’d like me to talk you through this please let me know. And huge thanks to Chris Evans at Applewood Permaculture Centre for helping me trial this – and demonstrating how easily it works!
so … back to that Seed Swap:
Saturday 3rd February 2018: Hereford Seed Swap
From beginners to seasoned gardeners please come along and swap seeds, plants and tips. Don’t worry if you have nothing to swap, you can still join in and take home some seeds or plants. Cash contributions gratefully received!
There is no entry charge and there will be stalls, a talk, tool sharpening and the regular Courtyard food and drink. With Tools for Self Reliance and a free talk at 11.30am from Chris Collins – Chris is Garden Organic’s Head of Organic Horticulture and is a former Blue Peter gardener, Chelsea medal winner and lifelong promoter of organic growing.
