Seedlibrary Storytelling Evening – Crack a Story: Plant a Seed

Join us for another of our seedy storytelling events practically exploring stories of human-nature relationships and seedsaving!

The Salisbury Centre Seed Library is excited to welcome back the wonderful herbal storyteller Amanda Edmiston (Botanica fabula) for another evening of ‘seedy’ storytelling and nature connection practices. Amanda will share some stories with us there will be space for a crack – the Scottish word for a conversation – to discuss and ask questions, and we will explore feeling into our own stories related to a particular plant and its seeds and think about how to pass them on and share them with others.

With days growing darker and winter quickly approaching, this is an opportunity to come together for inspiration, reflection and discussion on our place in nature and our relationships with seeds in particular. You are invited to take seeds from our library and do bring any seeds you would like to swap or share with the community!

Come prepared for any weather! We will spend some time connecting with the plants and seeds around us, wandering in the garden, sharing around a fire and in our lovely library inside.
Accompanied children are welcome, although the stories are more tailored to adults and those over 12 years old.
Arrive from 2:45pm to settle in for a prompt start at 3pm.
These events are funded by the Edinburgh Council Community Fund and free to participants. As spaces are limited please sign up via Eventbrite and let us know if you need to cancel so someone else can take your place.
Feel free to email our Seed Library Coordinator Hannah with any questions regarding the event at hannah@salisburycentre.org
