Sow & grow for our spring fundraiser

Sow & grow for our spring fundraiser

We’d love it if you could sow extra seeds, take cuttings and grow plants on for our plant sale in the city this spring.

We’re hosting the event in May at CommuniBakes and are asking for plant donations to sell.

Where & when

Our Fundraising and Finance Coordinator, Emily Arbery, says: “We’re delighted to be hosting our third annual spring plant sale at our commercial venture, CommuniBakes at 21, St James Road in Shirley on Saturday, May 11 from 10am until 12pm.

“All the money raised from the sale of plants people donate will be go towards furthering the work we do to help vulnerable and isolated people in Southampton and it’s an invaluable event in both our fundraising and social calendar.

How to get involved

“We’re asking anyone out there who might be currently sowing or growing plants for themselves to please also sow and plant up, or take a few extra cuttings for us, and donate them to our sale. Or if anyone has too many potted plants, indoor or out, that they would like to give us to sell too, that’d be great. Donations can be dropped at CommuniBakes on the day of the event from 8.30am.

Bakery treats

“The event will take place at the back of CommuniBakes and will include a variety of houseplants and outdoor garden plants. Attendees can also pick up a tea or coffee and a sweet or savoury treat from the bakery if they wish to. These can be enjoyed using the bakery’s outside tables and chairs, subject to availability.”
