Donegal free seeds
DONEGAL Library Service are
giving away free seed packs to everyone who registers
for the Grow it Forward programme. This initiative will
see 50,000 free food growing kits given away through
libraries across Ireland.
Each food growing pack includes seeds for beetroot,
carrots, salad leaves, peas and tomatoes; a guide to
help grow them and a postcard and gift tags to help
share them. Donegal Libraries will give participants the
opportunity to receive a free copy of Gardening for
Biodiversity and Biodiversity in Your Garden by Juanita
Browne along with the pack.
Participants are asked to use the kits and to share the
experience with ten people, enabling half a million
people across Ireland to enjoy the wide range of
benefits that come from growing food at home. Those who
sign up will also receive regular emails with growing
support, video clips and ideas for how to ‘Grow it
Forward’. This can be done by passing on seeds,
seedlings or produce in accordance with social
