Seed Swap at the Farmers' Market
January 13, 5-8pm
Let's get together and share seeds for the 2016 season! This event will take place in the Community Room and will coincide with the People's Food Coop Farmers' Market.
For the seed swap to go well, please do the following:
- Bring seeds to offer into the swap.
- While we'd like to focus primarily on vegetables, medicinals and other "functional" species, seeds for ornamentals are cool too, if that's you're thing. Please make sure they're labeled as to species and variety (and also open-pollinated vs. hybrid, if known). Please don't bring unknown seeds or seeds that are too old to germinate reliably. You could consider seeds that are more than 6 years old, too old. If your seeds are between 2-4 years old, we may want to combine them with other seeds for making seedballs.
- Bring containers to take seeds home in (small jars, empty seed packets, empty teabag packets, etc.).
- Some masking tape, markers, and other useful tools for labeling seeds will be provided, but feel free to bring your own too.
Note, the way the seed exchange will work:
ALL seeds will be placed out on tables, by category, and we will observe the honor system. If you have unopened packets of seed that you would like to share part of, please separate out what you want to keep prior to coming. No GMO or fumigated seeds, please...
Volunteers are needed. Please contact email firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested.
You can sign up online, or call the co-op to let us know you're coming. But feel free to drop in as well, the more the merrier!
