Someone’s fingers are reaching to pick seeds from a dried sunflower in a community garden, on a sunny day with blue sky.

Sunflower Seed Picking Glasgow Seed Library

Have you been growing this year? It’s time to gather in the seeds!

Drop in and take part in a relaxed seed-sorting event at Rumpus Room. If you have seeds to deposit in the library, bring them in, and we can process, package and label them together.

There will be wet and dry seed processing stations set up, so you can bring things like tomatoes, dried pea and bean pods or whole seed heads. Rowan Lear and Alkmini Gkousiari from Glasgow Seed Library will be on hand to chat and answer your questions about seed-saving. And there will be healthy snacks to keep us all going!
