SEED POP-UP is a seed swapping market, a temporary shop, where everyone can come and swap seeds or take some seeds home for growing their own garden. There will also be a small-scale sale of selected seed species. Opening hours are 11-17, from February 15th to 20th 2016.
With the SEED POP-UP, we want to draw attention to:
- To promote interest in and knowledge of seed collection and gardening
- The social impact of seed saving
- The consequences of seed legislation in Europe and globally
- The seed’s importance for our Mother Earth
and topics like biodiversity, agriculture, food and environment.
Therefore, we invite noteable people with backgrounds in agriculture, politics, ecology and practice to give their view on seeds as community resource in a series of lectures. In addition to the seed swapping market and lectures there will be various events during the 2 weeks: Practical workshops on gardening, seedsaving and film screenings. The final program will be ready in week 5 2016: www.froepopup.dk
SEED POP-UP is a collaboration between four organizations: Community Garden 2200 (Byhaven2200), Danish Seedsavers, Permaculture Denmark and The Danish Association for Practical Ecology.
