This months talk will be all about foods that may benefit your health (Let food be your Farmacy). We will also continue our seed / plant swaps so please bring any unwanted seeds or excess plants and who knows you might just pick up that seed / plant you have been looking for. There is no need to bring anything if you don’t have spares and you can still take what you see during the swap. For June, July and August we will be on the road visiting gardens at our usual meeting time. More details at next meeting and in local press over the coming weeks.
