Mindfood Open day: Share your seedlings

To accompany Mindfood seedling for schools giveaway, Mindfood are having an open day this Saturday 23 April at Horsenden Farm, Greenford, UB6 7PQ.

The community is invited to donate fruit or vegetable seedlings, and in return, you could go home with a lovely new houseplant or succulent.

Join Mindfood for family-friendly gardening fun, and to take a look around their growing plot.

The annual Mindfood Grow Some Share Some project aims to share young veg plants with as many local primary schools, charities and support groups as possible.

MindFood’s target this year is 20 primary schools…but can you help us get to all 70?

Don’t worry if the seedlings to donate need potting up, they will have a potting station on the day.

There will also be a family sowing station, so that every child has something to take home.
