Seed Growers and Harvesters:


 Join the seed savers revolution!

Advice on slugs:


Read the following slightly adapted, manifesto and apply it to your life... 
This international Seed Savers manifesto has been changed in regard to Irish plant growing and gardening conditions.

I, affirm that I will constantly ;.................

Plant seeds as well as save seeds, and protect them from Slugs

Make the space and time to stay in tune with my higher "Bean", and except my lower "rooty" goodness.   In essence I am a slug.

Never let go of the big vision even when the slugs are bigger

Put my values, including integrity, compassion, and love at the centre of my compost making and slug discouragement

Have respect for self, and slugs, respect for others and their slugs & responsibility for all my actions even when dealing with slugs, 

Believe in myself so others will, too. Believe in the power of slugs especially on a warm misty night.

Keep humour and laughter as vital ingredients of my business plan, between crying about it and the slugs

Get up early in the morning to catch the slugs

Manifest abundance in all areas of my life except for slugs

Keep my clutter to a minimum to keep slugs at bay.

Recognize my gifts and delegate the rest, and like us delegate to the slugs that which you will not do

Look at difficult situations from all perspectives even the slugs

Welcome in mentors and mentor others in return, show em' what a snail is

Light candles every day and surround myself with fresh flowers and slugs

Give people more than they expect, slug traps that work

Talk slowly but think quickly, like a slug

When I lose, donít lose the lesson, just the slugs

Know my industry, sluggish

Keep improving my technology skills, Microsoftslug

Smile when picking up the phone there could be a slug between you and the earpiece.

Remember my body is my most important tooló stretch, exercise, breathe, go for a walk, dance and pick slugs

Every day try and read a poem, listen to an inspiring piece of music, look at a wonderful painting or go into nature to find the great slug

Drink six to eight glasses of pure water every day and eat slugs dipped in chocolate

Listen as well as talk to slugs

Learn the rules, and then break some "slug butt"

Know there is nothing more sexy than confidence and slugs

Remember that no-one, not even myself is perfect, but Iím doing the best I can, or in slug terms I may be slimy but I am going to eat tonight
