Donegal free seeds giveaway 06.04.21

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 distancing guidelines.
Who can take part? - Everyone can to take part regardless of their experience in growing or the space they have to grow in. We encourage everyone young and old to take part and to spread the word of the Grow it Forward initiative to their friends and family. There is a limited number of kits so remember to register early, as they will be sent out on a first come, first served basis.
