Give & Take: Seed Swap (2nd try!)

We've rescheduled this after having to cancel due to the snowstorm...

Let's share our dreams and plans for the coming growing season in the form of seeds! Do you have more of something than you need? Are you interested in learning about new and unusual varieties and trying them out? This is a great opportunity for you to do both. Bring your over-large packets that you purchased, and seeds you saved from your own gardens and let's spread the wealth.

We are trying to reinvigorate our swap meetups - now called Give & Take Meetups - and are starting with this seed swap (look for a plant swap coming in May).

The event is free and open to all, though donations to the meetup group will be gratefully accepted. Please be on time so you won't miss the introductions when everyone gets to tell what they have brought.

You can also bring items other than seeds - especially home/homestead made treasures like your own canned goods, eggs, honey, wool, etc.

    Good to see and meet everyone. Thanks to the swap I now have a few new items to try. I'm hoping to "save" more seeds this year for the next go round. Am looking forward to a plant swap. I usually have more than I can use.

    I'm so sorry, but something has come up with my kids and I won't be able to make the swap. Thanks for organizing and I hope I can make any others that might be scheduled. Have fun!

    I won't be able to attend this one. Hope the weather at least cooperates.

    Just a reminder, March 10 is also the last day to get your seed special orders into Wentworth Greenhouses. Packets only, no shipping charges, Johnnys, Seed Savers or Botanical Interest seeds only. After the swap, you'll know what you have to order!

    As far as a potluck - at 5pm we'll be showing a film at Waysmeet in Durham and we'll have a potluck after that. We hope lots of folks will swap seeds, watch the movie and eat with us, all in Durham that day/night!
