Dyfi Seed Savers

Dyfi Valley Seed Savers, based in Machynlleth promotes the saving and swapping of vegetable seed with the aim of preserving our plant heritage and promoting sustainable gardening.

Projects include the Welsh Seed Search which is discovering local vegetable varieties and bringing them back into cultivation, and the Apple Mach Register, a record of apple varieties being grown locally to assess their disease resistance.

Each year sees a Seedy Sunday in February for Seed Swapping, a Seedling Saturday in May for plant swapping and a grafting session to propagate apple trees from our register.
