tree26seedfestivalsmallCommon Good Food and Helping Britain Blossom are hosting a Seed and Tree Festival on Saturday 6th February in Glasgow. Taking place at the St Francis Centre, this will be a day of celebrating food for the common good, and looking at how we can preserve and improve seed and tree diversity in Scotland.
An exciting and inspiring event for all the family, this will also be a great opportunity to meet other groups and individuals working in food and environmental activism in Scotland. There are a number of ways organisations and community groups can be involved which are shown below.

  • Have a stall at our lunchtime market – would you like to promote your organisation and activities? Or perhaps you have plants, food or another related product to sell? We are expected 100+ participants at the event and have plenty of space at the venue for stalls during our morning and lunchtime breaks. Organisations can have one free ticket for the daytime for a stall-holder, with additional tickets available for only £5 (which includes lunch). There will also be the opportunity to take part in the workshops, activities and discussions taking place throughout the day.
  • Take part in our Seed Swap – Common Good Food’s Seed Kits will be making a reappearance at the event, sharing open pollinated and heritage seed varieties to grow this year. We’re inviting community growers to bring along their own seeds to swap and share, taking part in what we hope will grow into a bigger seed network for Scotland in the future…
  • Share our event with your networks – we’d greatly appreciate it if you could let your members or networks know about the Seed and Tree Festival – we’re a volunteer organising team, and word of mouth can go a long way! We have a facebook event here that you can share, a poster attached below, or you can share this link on twitter (we’re (@CommonGoodFood) , your website or any newsletters you may have going out soon –
