Let's get together and share seeds for the 2018 season! This event will take place in the Community Room on the second floor of People's Food Coop.
For the seed swap to go well, please do the following:
- Bring seeds to offer into the swap.
- While we expect the event to focus primarily on vegetables, medicinals and other "functional" species, seeds for ornamental plants are cool too. Please make sure they're clearly 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:
Generally, 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 Marisha if you're interested.
Please share this event with your friends and community.
