Growing Together Group

To coincide with our Autumn Give Away we’ve started a new Facebook Group called OSF Growing Together. The aim of the group is to establish a supportive on-line community of growers in the North East of Scotland. This will be a chance to share growing experiences (post your photos and any updates), share useful hints and tips, share useful links and information, and to find out about the next One Seed Forward give away. Join us! https://www.facebook.com/groups/osfgrowingtogether

Growing Onion and Garlic – Film

To accompany our Autumn Give Away, we’ve made a 2-minute film giving advice and information on how to plant and grow the onion sets and garlic cloves.

You can view the film in the Autumn Give Away section of the website.

Help us Raise Funds

We’re lucky to have been chosen for the Co-op Local Community Fund until October 2022. 🤩
 
For every £1 spent by members, 2p will be donated to One Seed Forward. 😃
 
If you don’t already have a Co-op card you can become a Member by joining online at www.coop.co.uk/membership . It costs £1 to join but (at the same time as raising funds for us) you’ll get weekly money-off offers, and also special member-only discounts. So should be a win-win for both of us!
 
Once you’ve got your membership, choose One Seed Forward as the cause you’d like to support. Each time you then shop and swipe or scan your membership card, you’ll be helping to raise funds for us!
You can view our fund-raising page at: membership.coop.co.uk/causes/60352

Thank you! As a voluntary organisation we depend on fund-raising to continue our work – encouraging all ages to grow their own fruit and vegetables.

Delighted to say that we’ll be at Bonnymuir Green on Saturday 20th November when we’ll be giving away FREE onion sets to anyone who’s keen to keep growing over the winter months. While stocks last! See you then 😃

Autumn Give Away

Here’s a chance to keep your growing going over winter! We have a 100 onion sets 🧅to give away for FREE. If you’re quick you might also receive an Elephant 🐘 garlic 🧄 clove 😉. We’ll send these out in the post on a first-come first-served basis, to anyone who emails us with their name, address and postcode.

Once processed we’ll delete the email and all contact details. We’re also starting a FB group called OSF Growing Together which we encourage you to join – more details will be included with your onion sets!

One Seed Forward Film

We were super happy to be be chosen by ACVO and Volunteer Aberdeen for one of their short films featuring volunteer organisations who are playing a part in tackling climate change.

Filming took place in the Community Allotment last week (thankfully a lovely day!). Thanks to Andrew for a great little film! 😃

What do you think of our website?

We’re pleased to say our website is back working properly again. What do you think of the website? We want to check it’s working ok for you, and that it has the kind of information you expect and find useful. What can we do to make it better?

Please take a few minutes to let us know by filling out our Website Feedback Form.

Our Website is Playing Up!

Apologies. Our website software was updated recently and unfortunately a number of links and other things aren’t working as a result! 😕 We’re working away to get it sorted though, so check back soon!

Update (4/11/21): Website is back working ok!

New Campaign Poster!

Thanks to the lovely (and patient!) Neil at Peacock & The Worm who helped us design and make a brand new campaign poster last week (for free!) – look out for them at future One Seed Forward events!
Not as easy as you might think… almost read ‘Crow Your Onw Food’ instead of ‘Grow Your Own Food’!😅 😆
Well worth giving the Aberdeen People’s Press exhibition a look…. or even making your own campaign poster! 😉
