Seed Packing @ the Food Co-op
Thursday 9 October, 4:30-6pm
Been a bit slim on the helpers last few seed packings, if you’re thinking about coming we’d love some extra help…. for the whole time or come for a bit (and take home some seeds). We have heaps of lovely heirloom varieties in so could be interesting learning also 🙂

Volunteering with DB – Film Organiser
