Thank you for your interest in our first Community Seed Swap. Please click here to let us know that you intend to come and which seeds you intend to bring!
According to Vegetable Gardening in the Northeast by Marie Iannotti, May is a great month to plant sweet potatoes, beans, broccoli raab, corn, cucumbers, lettuce, melon, okra, pumpkin, rutabaga, and squash.
Bring your well-labeled seeds with growing instructions as well as empty containers to bring home your newly acquired seeds. Informal, easy-going get-together. Swap, Learn and Share! Contests and prizes.
Please do not bring:
1. seed you’ve collected from hybrid plants, as it won’t grow true to type.
2. If the seeds are older than 2-4 years old, they may not be viable. Some seeds (onions, leeks, parsnips, celery, spinach, salsify) are only good for a year unless stored especially well.
3. And of course, please do not bring any GMO seed.
No seed? No problem! Come, learn, and go home with some seeds to sow.
