A celebration to bring seeds & people together



The seed swap is just around the corner, we hope you can join us! 


Seed swapping is about engaging your community while sharing seeds with
friends & neighbors and exchanging knowledge & ideas.  And it makes you


Don’t forget  to bring markers, pens, pencils, bags, envelopes, seed saving
containers (less plastic please, zero waste our goal) and mark all your seed
donations with as much information as possible; good seed saving etiquette
suggests including, plant name (common & scientific), where grown, date
collected, etc.  Most seeds are best if no more than 3 years old.  


We are always grateful for volunteers.  See below for ways to help. 


Current seed catalogs to put on our community information table welcome if
you have some to share.
