Come Prepared to the Seed Exchange
You do not need to bring seeds to participate Come, gather seeds & learn about gardening in the PNW - whether you can contribute seeds or not. We'll have plenty of seeds for this year’s garden. If you bring seeds to sharePlease make sure they are no older than 3 years, or you have tested their ability to germinate. You may bring leftover seed packets and/or your own home grown seed. More info on contributing seed on our SEED SAVING page. There is no charge to participate However, the Seed Exchange is supported entirely by your donations. Please bring some CASH tocontribute if/what your budget can afford. There may be some small scale seed farmers selling seeds, and the FFA club selling potted flower bulbs. There will be hot beverages available for a small donation. To collect seeds at the exchange,bring small envelopes and markers for labeling seeds. There are instructions for two different handmade seed envelopes on our SEED SAVING page. We will have limited supply of envelopes available by donation but are likely to run out. Stay for an hour or the entire day The Seed Exchange is a community event with lots to do, learn and see. Garden demonstrations will be going on throughout the day, Look over this page carefully for details on the day! Come early and allow at least an hour to enjoy all the events. Volunteers are needed! There are a variety of volunteer opportunities available to choose from. More details on benefits & tasks on our volunteer page.
Volunteers are especially needed in the afternoon.
Individuals can participate for as short as an hour or for the entire day’s schedule.
All volunteers get the benefit of collecting seeds and seed catalogs an hour before the Seed Exchange opens to the public.
