The Seeds Project: Upcoming Events

The Seeds is a horticulture wellbeing project designed and run by the experienced horticulturalist and garden designer Virginia Cucchi. The project is a partnership between Positively UK, The Food Chain, YMCA Positive Health and The Calthorpe Community Gardens, where people gather for regular gardening sessions, outdoor gym classes, picnics and nutrition talks. To celebrate the beginning of the summer, the Seeds participants invite you to:
