In the beginning

Welcome to the first post of the Sow. Give. Grow. project.

Over the last few years we have discovered the wonders of growing our own food, initially through seedling that had been gifted to us. Now we would like to share this experience with you. As sowers we will be leaving seedlings in random locations to be given a good home by anyone who feels inspired to care for these plants. These growers are encouraged to take the seedling and replant it into a bigger pot or their garden. Within weeks they should be able to start harvesting.

We would also love others to join us as sowers. When you are next planting out some seeds into pots, plant a few extra into biodegradable, recyclable or reusable pots.

Later today the first of these seedlings will be released out into the world and hopefully taken home to start a new life. Growers have the opportunity to come to Sow. Give. Grow. to find out more about the project and hopefully add a comment about the experience.

If you feel this is something you would like to be part of, follow the instructions on the Sowers page.

Make sure to come back later today to see the first trans-planting.

I LOVE IT! What a GREAT Idea. Good for you for organising this, I think it will go well. There are so many seeds in a packet! I am always giving my seedlings away if I can't get them planted anywhere.
I shall become a Sower and will promote on my blog as well.
WELL DONE and good luck with the Project. :)

Gooseberry Jam, thanks so much for your enthusiasm and support. We just did the first trans-plant of seedling and we giggled the whole way!
Looking forward to seeing photos of your trans-plants! : )
