13th Annual Seed Celebration & Swap
Seeds! Seeds! Seeds!
Bring seeds to swap – seeds you have saved yourself from plantings, half-used favorite packs or never opened things you found you couldn’t use. We are offering seeds collected in our OSH landscape & gardens (pollinator plants, job’s tears, agastache, etc.), leftovers that we re-ordered new, unusual things people have given us and hundreds of packs from outstanding companies who generously donated. Every person gets at least one pack of seeds for free.
View seeds in their whole form – you can clean seeds yourself and take some home. A great activity for children. Talk with other gardeners about what they plan to plant! Information on how to save seeds, how to plant, and why heirloom and organic seeds are important, compost training, and some garden books to browse for ideas. Free catalogs from great seed companies.
For sale: Hudson Valley Seed Co. Art packs – selected for city growing.
Fedco Seeds – we will share the seeds we plant in our OSH gardens – bring envelopes or containers so we can divide packs. If we want, we can make a group seed order or figure out how to do this next year to get a discount from Fedco.
District 15 Garden Train is a new working-group to organize school gardens on a social level – this means pooling information to learn how to make school gardens more sustainable. With people entering and leaving every year, school gardens face specific challenges. Garden Train is interested in developing a model that can be implemented in every district in NYC. Stop by their table to discuss.
Blue Lotus Botanicals will offer wonderful Seedy Soaps and healing creams to sooth winter skin conditions.
One never knows who or what will turn up at the Swap!
