Seed Swap 2024

Bristol Seed Swap brings people together to exchange seeds, promote food growing and gardening and encourage resilience in our food system.

What can I expect at Bristol Seed Swap?

  • Seed Tables - where you can browse to choose the seeds you need
  • Speakers - hear from experts on seed saving, food resilience, gardening and more
  • Stalls - selling plants, seeds, 'green' goods and promoting organisations with a growing or ethical theme
  • Food - a wonderful pop-up cafe serving fabulous drinks and cake
  • Information - about local growing projects, and how to get growing
  • People - lots of friendly and happy volunteers and visitors

We want as many people as possible to grow food and to get into gardening generally. Money should be no barrier to doing so so tickets and seeds are free. ​Donations for entry and for seeds are welcome if you can afford it - it is entirely at your discretion, no one is going to ask you about it. Bristol Seed Swap Events are self funding and run entirely by volunteers. Next year's event depends on this year's breaking even.

I don't have seeds to swap can I still join in?

Absolutely YES. Everyone has to start somewhere, and we want to get everyone growing - whether you have a window box, a small Bristol front garden or are on the waiting list for an allotment.

For next year, please try saving some seeds to bring to the Seed Swap.

What do I need to bring?

Seeds - to add to the Seed Tables if you have any, these can be spare shop bought seeds or ones you have saved yourself.

Friends and neighbours -tell the gardeners in your life about the Swap, some people are just too busy growing things to look at social media - we find it hard to reach them with publicity.​

​Cash for donations although we can now take Paypal too.
