Let's get together and share seeds for the 2013 season! And have a potluck too!
For the seed swap to go well, please do the following:
- Bring seeds! to offer into the swap. It's a seed swap, not a seed giveaway. While we'd like to focus primarily on vegetables, medicinals and other "functional" species, seeds for ornamentals are cool too, if that's you're thing. Please make sure they're 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 (if you're not sure how old is too old, see this link.)
- Bring containers to take seeds home in (small jars, empty seed packets, empty teabag packets, etc.)
- Bring food to share...and a label so folks know what it is.
- Bring a plate/bowl and your preferred utensil.
That's about it! Some masking tape, markers, and other useful tools for labeling seeds will be provided, but feel free to bring your own too.
Feel free to share widely. The more the merrier!
(Note: The way the seed exchange will work: ALL 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.

Please DO NOT comment in the field below. It emails the comment to everyone who is RSVP'd, and in the past, excessive comment/email volume has caused members to leave the meetup. If you have an urgent comment, please use the "Contact" button to the above-left, or start a discussion thread via the "Discussions" button at the top of the page. Thanks for your cooperation!
