The organisers of Seedy Sunday in Hove insist that the event will go ahead today whatever the weather.
The Seedy Sunday website said: “A little bit of snow doesn’t stop us swapping seed!”
The event is Britain’s biggest community seed swap as well as a campaign to protect biodiversity and protest against the increasing control of the seed supply by a handful of large companies.
The event is due to start at 10am today (Sunday 5 February) at Hove Town Hall in Norton Road and finish at 4.30pm.
Entry costs £2 with children admitted for free. The organisers said that there would be more than 50 stalls, a range of talks, demonstrations and children’s activities – and the community seed swap.
Anyone bringing seeds is asked to put them in labelled envelopes.
