December 2011

Let this summer be fruitful and produce great quantities of seed for you, our members, to hand over to the nursery* in brown paper bags. These brown paper bag 'contributions' are an essential part of your membership. Get it? If you don't cough up seed, how can we promise you'll benefit from our environmental 'protection racket'.

And speaking of membership, when was the last time you planted a plant? This is not an armchair organisation, you know. The nursery is bursting at the seams with gorgeous greenery, and where are you? No excuse is good enough. Get thee to the nursery and get planting. You know you should.

*SOWN Nursery will be shut on Saturday 24 December, Wednesday 28 December and Saturday 31 December.
