Committee Vacancies 

Stalls Manager *position vacant *

We’re putting on a full event again next year, so need an event manager to run the commercial horticultural stalls, the local community and charity stalls in a new venue. Responsible for the stall application and booking process, stallholder communications, finalising the room plans and overseeing those areas on the day.

Marketing/ Communications: *position vacant *

Help implement the communications plan, to make more of our social media and communication channels and monitor them.

We feed our content through to other key local gardening/ growing orgs and allotment groups. We have set points in the event calendar – poster launch, new venue information, seed saving demos, seed packing, guest speakers and calls for volunteers in the run up to the event

Children’s Activities *position vacant *

Put together a programme of childrens activities in the new venue, which offers indoor and outdoor space. Engage an appropriate activity provider and recommend relevant activity materials.

Get in touch

In addition we have 40+ volunteers helping to make the day run smoothly. If you would like to become a volunteer for Seedy Sunday 2023 and beyond, then sign up on the website or at the Info Desk on the day.

We’re very lucky to have a great relationship with the team at Infinity Foods.

They generously sponsor us every year, display our posters and give away our seed envelopes in their shop on North Road Brighton. They also run a fantastic stall at Seedy Sunday selling organic seed potatoes.
