Spring seed swap and secateurs sharpening

@ Tayport Community Garden

It’s time to get ready for spring at the garden. Bring your spare seeds to swap with others, join seed packet design competition for all ages and have a go at getting your secateurs ready for gardening action under Peter’s expert guidance. It should be fun for the whole family! There will be hot drinks, cakes and lots of time to chat and swap gardening tips. This event is part of Pass It On week, 10-18 of March, Scotland’s annual celebration of re-use, supported by Recycle Scotland and Zero Waste Scotland.
