  • Seed and Plant Swap

    Posted on April 30th, 2009 admin No comments

    The seed and plant swap last Saturday (25th April) went really well. We carried a table from the Town Hall and set it up in the Victoria Woodholme car park, next to the Council’s compost giveaway, with a fair selection of plants and seeds.

    The car-park was very busy. An advert (including BTT plant swap) had gone out in the Mid-Devon Advertiser and also on the radio.

    The Council’s compost was gone by 11.00 but we stayed until about 12.15, as did Eric from Go Green Devon. Eric gave us a pack of marrow seeds to swap. His company collects garden, green waste and timber, composts it, makes wood chip or veg frames, planters etc. They now also have young adults with learning difficulties working with them.

  • Free lightbulbs on Fore Street!

    Posted on March 26th, 2009 admin No comments

    On Saturday 21st March some members of Buck the Trend handed out free low energy lightbulbs on Fore Street and near the Co-op, accompanied by Toby’s beautiful flute music and, later, Iona on violin.

    We met a great response – the point of it was to promote the Energy Fair the following Saturday so, even though quite a few people said they already had enough low energy lightbulbs (“a cupboard full of them” in one case), most people were interested in the Fair, and a lot planned to come along!
