Event: Seed Swapping and Saving

Free

Join City Planter staff for an informal seed swap! 

This is an opportunity to collect seeds from fellow local gardeners and to share seeds from your own crops.  Meet some other gardeners, bring seeds that you have harvested OR bring some of your left over seeds to swap for some new varieties to try in the spring.

* Please bring at least 3 varieties of seeds to share in order to participate in the swap.

*All seeds must be labeled and packaged with type of seed and date of collection, if known (regular envelopes are fine).  No loose seeds!

There will be some basic seed saving instructions for newbies.
