Seed the Day returns to Bridgwater next month

VEGAN Fairs and Bridgwater Town Council will again host the popular event ‘Seed the Day’ on Saturday, September 11.

It will be held in Bridgwater High Street, the town hall and the Engine Room.

Stalls will be open from 10am until 4pm and will encompass a range of vegan food, products, talks and activities along with charity and community-based stalls with a focus on the environment.

Cllr Kathy Pearce, Climate Emergency Portfolio Holder on the town council said: “The recent report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Meteorological Office predictions of rising sea levels locally, set out why we must take account of impact on our environment through the choices we make.

“Therefore, this event is part of Bridgwater Town Council’s Climate Emergency Strategy to promote amazing alternative produce and products which literally do not cost the earth and have some fun at the same time.

“We invite everyone to come along to enjoy the range of produce on offer, maybe try something new and find out how we can all make a difference.”

 

In addition to the stalls in the town hall and along the High Street, the Engine Room will be hosting a number of activities, including the popular Repair Café, a Seed and Plant Swap stall, talks on how to Garden for Wildlife and Grow Perennial Vegetables.

In addition there’s a chance to see an uplifting film called Motherload about how a bike empowers a young mother in a gas-powered, digital and divided world.
