Look in at seedy session.

MIDDLESBROUGH''S second community seed exchange is being held on Sunday as part of a drive to get people growing fresh produce.

Growers from across the town will meet to enjoy a drink and swap seeds gathered from last year's harvest.

Seedy Sunday is a joint venture between registered charity Middlesbrough Environment City and the Friends of Linthorpe Cemetery.

It will take place from noon to 2pm at the Hebrew Prayer House in Ayresome Green Lane, opposite the site of the old General Hospital in Linthorpe. Entry is free.

Catherine Boyle, Middlesbrough Environment City's urban farming project officer, said last year's Seedy Sunday was a fun opportunity for visitors to share not only seeds but tips, experiences and time.

"It was so successful we couldn't resist the opportunity to repeat it," she added.

To take part in this year's Seedy Sunday event, simply bring items to swap - harvested seeds or unwanted tools, for example - and turn up ready to exchange your goods.
