Seed Swap

11th Annual Seed Celebration & Swap
Presented by The New York Permaculture Exchange, The Park Slope Permaculture Guild and the Old Stone House & Washington Park.

Seed Celebration 2016This annual event brings together gardeners of all stripes to engage in the traditional activity of trading seeds.

Our seed heritage is as old as our love of great food and Brooklyn gardeners are savvy to the benefits of top quality, organic seeds. Heirloom varieties of tomatoes, lettuce, and root crops as well as more esoteric and ethnically diverse items such as asian greens and amaranth will be featured. The beautifully packaged Hudson Valley Seed Library seed will be available for purchase as well as selections from Fedco’s politically correct line of non-GMO seeds. Treasures from the Old Stone House gardens will include native flowers that support bees and butterflies

Demonstrations on starting seed and transplanting seedlings, sprouting greens, seed cleaning, making seed balls, and how to make compost will be running at tables throughout this event. Plenty of gardeners will be available to answer your garden questions.This event is suitable for both children and adults.
