Seedy Sunday and a chat with MP Caroline Lucas

February 10, 2015 by Pat Thomas

We really enjoyed our recent trip to Brighton to talk to people there about why we need to keep the pressure up on politicians and policy-makers to keep the UK GM free.

We spent a busy day at the Seedy Sunday event in Brighton – the UK’s oldest and largest community seed swap.

The bustling and vibrant day at Brighton’s Corn Exchange featured

  • Talks from Christine Walkden and other expert speakers
  • A Seed Swap table
  • More than 60 stalls
  • Cookery demonstrations
  • Children’s activities

There was also an Infinity Cafe where visitors could enjoy really delicious food – so named for the sponsors of the event Infinity Foods one of the UK’s leading wholesale distributors of organic and natural foods.

It was one of our most successful days ever for the GM Free Me campaign which had a stall at the event and spent the day chatting and taking photos for the ever growing GM Free Me gallery.

One of the people who stopped by to chat was Green Party MP Caroline Lucas, who was an early supporter of our campaign.

She was kind enough to speak to us on film about why we need to keep the UK GMO free.
