In the interests of transparency, and because it's been asked, it's about time I explained some of the behind-the-scenes workings of Seedy Sunday. People want to know more about what happens with the seeds, where they come from and how they get looked after.
There's an entire ecosystem of seeds that keep Seedy Sunday running. And explaining it all may show you the depth of my madness. But because this is a community event I think it's good to have a bit of clarity around what happens.
- Anna's seed collection
- Seedy Sunday's pot of gold
- A growing opportunity
- Funding the growth
LovePlantLife lets this happen by paying the bills - marketing, hall hire, printing, consumables etc. The donation at events usually covers afternoon tea and a bottle of wine for the speakers. None of the seeds I've received through Seedy Sunday have gone on to be sold.
So what do I get out of all this?I get to put together something pretty special. Seedy Sundays have been really popular, educational and social. Some great things have come out of it, some great friends even. I'm doing work I feel is really important. And I actually really enjoy harvesting, processing and packaging seed. I guess it's what you would call enjoying the little things in life :)
