Welcome to the Essex Seed Network. Sow & Grow are in the process of getting ready for planting season, using some of the seeds we saved from last season. Our mission this year is to create a network of home gardeners who grow abundant and healthy food, and save their seeds for next years season and share with their neighbours, family and friends.

Now is the time to start thinking about what seeds you would like to keep for next year. What vegetables and fruit do you really like to eat? Are you getting the best seeds which will grow into healthy food? Do you now that seed saving is relatively simple and fun. A great activity to do with the family and symbolises the cyclical beauty of nature. Tomatoes, squash, beans, broccoli and anything else you love to eat can all be seed saved. All of these have slightly different methods but all are fairly easy once you have tried it.
