Bellingen Seed Savers at Spring Plant Fair 8 September 2012

 The Spring Plant Fair 2012 was a great success.

A small group of our 'seedsavers' has been preparing a display of 'resilient plants' that are well suited to our climatic conditions.

Jodie and Michael staff the raffle counter.

The near perfect weather allowed Irene to mount helpful displays. The plant material was in demand and is exchanged for a small donation. We thus encourage the use of plant material that contributes to self sufficiency.

The Bellingen Seedsavers stall is always busy. Experienced gardeners provide information as well as seeds and plants.

Thank you to everyone involved with our stall:  the very enthusiastic and interested customers;  our dedicated and hard-working volunteers;  the energetic Lesley Green, who organises the plant fairs on behalf of Bellingen Environment Centre and special thanks for the perfect weather.

The Plant Fairs give us the opportunity to spread the word and share our seeds with our community.
We will look forward to doing it again in the Autumn.
