It's that time of year again! There may still be snow on the ground, but now is the perfect time to plan your spring garden. Please join us for an informal seed swap and potluck lunch! The plan is to meet at 2pm, share some food, and start swapping around 3pm. This will NOT be a formal, one-for-one swap; just bring extra seeds you'd like to share and take what you think you'll use! Everyone is welcome. Please see additional info below!
We ask that you bring only heirloom/open-pollinated (not hybrid, F1, or GMO) seeds to the swap. These are seeds that can be saved and planted year after year and will grow true-to-type. If you're unsure about what this means, there is some further information here and here).
If you can, it is helpful to divide your seeds up into clearly labeled packets/envelopes for easy swapping and identification afterwards (if they are not already in packets). Coin envelopes and small ziploc packets (used for beads and available at craft stores) work well for this.
If you're new to gardening or saving seed, please note that having/buying seeds beforehand is NOT a prerequisite to attend! I (and I'm sure many others) would be happy to share with those looking to get started. The goal is to get everyone interacting, and sharing information, experience and seeds.
Also, if you're looking for any particular varieties of seeds feel free to post your "wish list" on the message board below. Maybe one of the other attendees can help you out!
When you RSVP, please post on the message board below to let everyone know what you will be bringing for the potluck.
Please contact Matt or Leah with any questions. We look forward to seeing you!
