Seed Swap! -- Saturday, Jan. 31, 2015, 1-4 p.m.

Seed Swap

Please bring seeds if you have them. They can be homegrown or store-bought -- even partially used packets. Attendees aren’t required to bring seeds to take them, but are asked to limit what they take in order for all to enjoy the swap.

Workshops will offer further education on saving and cleaning seeds. Speakers include KCSLL Co-director and Urban Food Warrior Caitlin Moore; author Bill Thorness (Edible Heirlooms, Cool Season Gardener); and author and educator Lisa Taylor (Your Farm in the City, Maritime Northwest Garden Guide).

Non-profit greening groups will be on hand, and you can learn about the library’s newest branch: the Phinney Neighborhood Association! The PNA has agreed to host the seed collection in its popular Tool Library. Starting in February, seeds can be “checked out” during the Tool Library’s regular hours.

Come find some seeds, meet some great organizations making a difference in your community, get a raffle ticket, and learn new skills!

  2. Rats, forgot to check the calendar so we missed the swap, but we have lots of extra seeds, so we will stop by the Tool Library. Usually don't even look at the garden calendar till March. Radish are sprouting already, 7 weeks early. Could be a lot of bugs this year...
