Seed Giveaway 2021. We need your feedback!

As you know OSF is all about encouraging everyone to grow their own food. During 2021 we have given out free seeds and seedling at a number or events, and also to individuals. We need to know how people have got on with their growing, to help us plan future seed and seedling give-aways. If you received seeds or seedlings from us, please complete our short survey – it will only take you 2-3 minutes. Thank you!

3rd November 2021 – The survey has now closed but please feel free to contact us if there’s anything you’d like to let us know.
