2012 Seed and Plant Exchange

The 3rd Annual Seed and Plant Exchange is scheduled for Sat., May 19, 1-3pm, here at the Farm. 

How it works:  It's free.  Bring extra seeds and/or seedlings (gardening wisdom too) to swap or share with other gardeners.  Heirloom varieties are encouraged (for seed saving potential).  That includes: food crops, herbs, flowers, shrubs, trees, native plants, etc.  Hybrid seeds and plants can also be shared.  Label plants/seeds with variety name, special instructions, and your name, and bring baggies/envelopes to divvy up seeds.  Bring a lawn chair , too!  If you do not have seeds or plants to swap, come and mingle with gardeners and farmers informally sharing insights on gardening.

Schedule:  1pm:  bring seeds/plants,  volunteers organize seeds/plants; 1:45pm: announcements; 2pm: participants pick up seeds and plants to take home.

Notes on parking/carpooling:  Parking will be on the Lane.  Assistance will be provided to bring plants down our drive.  If you need assistance walking, you can park closer to the event; just come on down the drive.  Be sure to carpool if you can.  Better yet:  bike, ride your horse, hitch up your wagon. The Earth would like that.  

For more information:  check this blog.  In case of rain, the event will be held, Sun., May 20th.  Check this web site for change in date due to rain and further announcements too.

See you soon...
