Seedy Sunday Kapiti July 21, 2pm


July meeting
It may be pretty in full flower but Cathedral Bells Cobaea scandens is one of the worst weeds in Kapiti. We'll have someone from the Greater Wellington Regional Council's National Pest Plant Programme along to talk about the plants smothering our backyards and native areas. Bring along your weeds to identify.

Bring something to swap
The swap table will be open - bring along your seeds, plants or produce to swap with others (No weeds allowed!)

Anna Butterfield: Saving the best to last -- November 18 Seedy Sunday

The November edition of Seedy Sunday is on, after an unexpected hiccup with the September event.

I will be talking about how you can save money, save heritage, save  biodiversity, and save your food all by saving seeds. All it takes is a love of gardening and observation skills. I'll show you the tips and tricks to selecting plants to save seed from and how to harvest , clean and store them.

Remember to bring your labelled seeds, produce and useful plants for the swap table.
