If you are bringing seed to share*, please arrive by 10AM to set out your seeds, mingle, and maybe even help out at the Community Work Party happening that day, too. Expect to exchange about as many seed packs as you bring. We will have tables set up under canopies to keep seeds as dry as possible plus some paper envelopes and plastic bags to keep them dry. If you are not bringing seeds to swap, please come and get a few varieties to start with! There will be gardening books and other gardening resources to browse as well. Organic seed is most appreciated.

*Please DO NOT bring: 1) really old seed - most seeds will remain viable for 2-4 years, if kept in a cool, dry place out of the light; 2) any GMO seed or seed that might have been treated with pesticides; or 3) hybrid seed as it won’t grow true to type.

If you are bringing seeds you saved, please make a note with ALL important information.

For example: “Green Zebra Tomato: open-pollinated, heirloom, 2014, has grown well in my garden for years, heavy producer, medium-size fruit, indeterminate growth habit, about 70 to 80 days to maturity, good slicer, amazing tart flavor, attractive green and yellow stripes.”
