Share the Seed: Community Seed Swap

Thank you for your interest in our first Community Seed Swap on Saturday, May 3, 9-11am at Doylestown Fresh!

Come to our Community Seed Exchange  Share the Seed May14-page-001

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.

Learn from experts on these topics:
9:15-9:40 How does your garden grow?
9:45-10:10 Composting 101
10:15-10:40 Gardening and CSAs
10:45-11:00 Bees, what’s the Buzz about?

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.

Here’s what you can expect:

– Listen to workshops on bee keeping, composting, general gardening and more!
– Connect with local gardeners
– Get first-hand advice on how to grow the seeds you choose
– Learn what works, and what doesn’t from local experts
– Meet local people with a shared interest in growing food and protecting the environment
– Save money

Thanks and we can’t wait to share our seeds with you!
