Thousands of vulnerable people are being given seeds and instructions packages by a food co-op so they can grow their own grub.
The Seeds for Life packs include a packet of seeds suitable for
window-sill growing, such as lettuce or cress, growing instructions and a
recipe for people to try out at home.
The seed packs are expected to reach up to 4-6,000 people in Lambeth throughout the Covid-19 crisis.
Lambeth Food Co-op, supported by the Seeds for Life project, has made the packages with 3,000 packs of lettuce seeds donated by Sutton Seeds.

Please make cheques payable to “MSI Media Limited” and send by post to South London Press, Unit 112, 160 Bromley Road, Catford, London SE6 2NZ
