The Seed to Celebration Giveaway inspires sustainability by celebrating what we create from seeds. It is at the heart of the What Happens Next Project. Seed to Celebration is an expression of what we see as sustainable. We think to be sustainable there needs to be a celebration to aim for…. celebrating is what it’s all about!
Why we like to celebrate growing seeds
- because we want the wider community and participation to happen naturally,
- to create a spirit at an event which is never forgotten,
- celebrating the produce means that you are thinking what happens next, and so you will always appreciate your outdoor space.
So that’s why we like to give away information on how to grow plants from seed, how to manage them sustainably, and then how to celebrate the produce.
It will make you ask “what happens next?”.
What Happened Before
The Seed to Celebration Giveaway was originally piloted in 2015 during the Bristol Green Capital . Read here for details on the project and the blog (click here) on what we learnt. In short we wanted to give away information to every school in Bristol on how to grow from seed to celebration, and how to do this sustainably.
We believe the first step towards becoming sustainable is to educate and empower at the grassroots. So engagement with young people on how to grow, make then celebrate the produce in the garden is a great start.
The project in 2015 was a success and has laid the foundations for where the What Happens Next project is today
What is Happening Now?
From the success for the Seed to Celebration 2015 we are proud to announce more Seed to Celebration Giveaways.
We hope to work with communitys to create more content on:
- step by step garden tips
- the garden through the seasons
- how to manage the garden sustainably.
- how to reuse seeds water and compost for the following year
- how to celebrate the produce.
What Happens Next?
We want the Seed to Celebration Giveaway to to be taken up by anyone who wants to keep their sustainable projects alive in the future. Because this will mean more people in more places will be using their outdoor space sustainably over a longer period of time! The ultimate in sustainability!
So come join us and help inspire a sustainable urban farming movement which will stand the test of time, by working together and asking What Happens Next.
