A new website that will enable locals to share garden cuttings, seeds and plants this spring and summer is the brainchild of Sallyann Rose and Mike Sloyan. Details of the project, called Gardening Exchange, can be found at www.gardeningexchange.org
Webdesigner Mike Sloyan said: “Gardening Exchange is a free website platform that enables gardeners to share plants, cuttings, seeds etc as well as ideas and knowledge about gardening. There is a particular interest in sharing ideas on eco gardening practices. There are general discussion boards along with boards covering a range of gardening issues: Green Issues, Gardening Help and Advice, Gardening Events, Gardening Humour. We trialled the site for one week, during which 21 gardeners shared plants and advice. We now hope that with the beginning of spring the seeds of the concept will blossom and grow into a region wide community.”
Sallyann Rose hopes that Gardening Exchange ” will promote a giving culture amongst gardeners that will also help to create a greener and more attractive environment throughout Castle Vale.”
Gardening Exchange will have a table at Castle Vale Farmers Market on Saturday April 19 where interested gardeners can learn more about the website and also use the table to share their plants and cuttings etc.
