This is being run by the Shrivenham Allotment Gardens Association (SAGA) and any funds raised will be used to help improve the allotments  

If you have spare seeds or even too many young plants please bring them along.  Loose seeds in suitable containers or envelopes will be available and we already have lots of runner beans and sunflower seeds with packets of flowers and vegetables looking for a good home.  We also have some Autumn Raspberry plants.  Please ensure everything is suitably marked of course!  Please bring containers such as yogurt pots, or similar tubs or plastic bags or envelopes, to take away what you would like to try.  The idea is to swap, or for a donation, to take away something you would like to try.
