The intention of this event is to encourage seed saving and plant propagation, thereby strengthening the resilience of our local community. While bringing seeds and/or plants to the event is encouraged, we also want to welcome new gardeners to use this event as a resource to get started. For this reason, we will be accepting seed donations ahead of time to ensure a good variety for those who do not yet have seed saved to contribute.
To donate seed in advance:
1.) Label your seeds with the following information: name of plant, Latin name (if available), year seed was harvested, story about the seed or where it came from, and planting instructions.
2.) In order to honor plant diversity and small farms, we ask that you please DO NOT bring GMO seed to share. To honor native ecosystems, please DO NOT bring exotic, invasive plants to share.
