Grow Tatties Booklet

We are delighted to let you know about our brand new booklet ‘Grow Tatties’ – aimed at new and less experienced growers.

Free copies (along with seed potatoes, vegetable seeds, and some flower seeds) are available at our March Give Away events – now’s your chance to ‘Get Growing’!

For more information visit our Seed Potatoes web page.

OSF Potato Project

Growing potatoes in the NE of Scotland in 2022? If the answer is yes, would you like to help us with our Citizen Scientist type project? We want know what varieties of potatoes you’re growing this year, and how well they grow. For more details check out the Potato Project page.

Free Seeds!

As well as giving away FREE seed potatoes at our March events we’ll also be giving away a range of FREE vegetable and flower seeds.

These giveaways are possible thanks to a number of individuals and organisations who have generously donated seeds to OSF.

Visit our Seed Giveaway page for more information.

Tattie Days 2022

All dates for our free seed tattie giveaways are now confirmed. More information on individual events coming very soon – keep an eye on our Facebook page! 😀

Please note, sadly Seedy Sunday in Mintlaw (due to be held on 13th March) has been cancelled as a result of storm damage. 🥺

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.

Onion Set Give Away

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 😃
