All-day drop-in workshop.
This event is part of SIREN23 in Derry.
Find out how to make a range of seed mats for different crops at low-cost, with demonstrations from the Seed It Union stall at SIREN23. These handy little mats let you plan your sowing in advance, as well as helping you to space seeds more efficiently. They also allow for faster and more accurate sowing, even when outdoor growing conditions are less than ideal.
For vegetable crops, you’ll get the opportunity to work with lettuce, carrot, parsnip and kale, while there’s also be the chance to sow some wildflower mini-mats and to fit a range of pot sizes, from 4’’ up to 18”.
The seeds used in the workshop will all be organic and/or biodynamic, with other materials used including undyed kitchen roll made from recycled paper and wheat paste glues.
Labelled seed mats will be set aside to dry and may be collected at any point up to the close of the event.
This drop-in workshop is suitable for ages 4 yrs + with parental assistance.
