Where can I get these locally adapted seeds?” There is a select group of gardeners, farmers, and seed savers that gather and host ‘Seed Swaps’. The wonderful thing about the Seed Swap is that not only is it locally adapted to our climate, but the seeds are likely to be grown using organic techniques and principles. An added benefit is that you will have the opportunity to converse with the individual who grew and harvested the seed that you will inherit. This can be a very empowering experience. We can harvest and prepare a meal for you to eat once, but when we give you seeds to plant, and teach you how to nurture them, why should you ever go hungry again?
We invite any gardener that harvested their own seeds from plants they grew to come out and participate in our Seed Swap. What do you need to do?
Package and label the seeds you are willing to share.
RSVP here to confirm you are a gardener and bringing your own seeds
Then just show up! We’ll take care of the rest.
If you do not have seeds of your own, you are still definitely invited to attend to get seeds. However, since you will not have any seeds to trade, just leave a small monetary donation that will help us to prepare for our fall Seed Swap.
There will be a container gardening workshop, a healthy food preparation demonstration, and you will have the opportunity to visit one of the most elaborate community gardens in our great city!
See you there!
