Seed Bank

Everyone's welcome to use the seed bank.

Why?

The number of flying insects in the UK has plummeted by nearly 60% over the last 17 years, which is why we want to see more plants (which provide food and habitats) in our gardens.

We can support struggling wildlife, and increase biodiversity, by swapping and sharing excess shop-bought and home-grown seeds via the seed bank.

Where?

The seed bank can be found at Farnham Maltings (Red Lion Lane, GU9 7QN). Opposite the cafe in the reception is a doorway to a stairwell. At the bottom of the stairwell - surrounded by paper flowers -  you'll find our seed bank. 

How?

To use the seed bank, you'll have to first contact us so we can give you the code to unlock it. This way we can keep a record of all users. (Please note your privacy is important to us, and you can view Privacy Information here.)

Preparing for launch!

We're holding a soft launch for the seed bank at the Maltings reception area, on November 11th at 10:30am to midday, where we'll be on hand to explain how the seed bank works.

We'll also be handing out free packets of wildflower seed oddballs - to scatter now for blossoms next spring.

The seed bank will work on an honesty system

This means that if you take seeds from the bank you look to put some back. We also accept any type of seed, and ask that they're collected and stored properly (in labelled paper bags, filed alphabetically in the containers provided). Any problems, please get in touch.
