T.T.’s Seedy Saturday raised awareness and £68 on 16th February.
Our stall in the Farmers’ Market on Lemon Quay attracted a steady stream of visitors. On the stall we had:
- Our new leaflets,
- Jute shopping bags with the T.T. logo,
- A variety of publicity about future events/Ecotricity etc.,
- Brassica seedlings from local growers Fentongollan,
- And last but not least, a great selection of seeds for swapping including woad (!) and the inimitable Falmouth Pasty seed (add meat, onion, pastry for best results).
As well as “ordinary” members of the public we met or re-affirmed contact with members of the Civic Society, Truro in Bloom and Truro Concern together with a possible link with a local 2 acre smallholder. Local stallholders were generally very supportive, knowing of our localisation aims.
At the end of a rather chilly session, we were still keen to promote our next stall focussing on carbon footprinting and energy use but in the hopefully warmer temperatures of April.
Many thanks to all concerned, including Jeremy Hosking who donated 1,500 seedlings, some of which will wend their way to St. Austell’s Seedy Saturday on 23rd February.
