Seed Swap N'Sale - Community Harvest of SW Seattle

From the website of Community Harvest of Southwest Seattle

Seed Swap N'Sale
Saturday, February 20th 1PM - 4PM
South Seattle Community College
6000 16th SW Seattle 98106

Want to save money on seeds this year? Try some interesting varieties without buying full packets. Avoid ending up with left-over seeds at the end of the season.

Come to Community Harvest's 1st Annual Seed Swap N'Sale.

We have ordered seeds in bulk from Territorial, Seed Savers, and Fedco and will be splitting them into mini-packets, the right size for the home gardener. Have a look at our seed list. All seed packets will be 75¢. There will be dependable standards like Fordhook Giant Swiss Chard, as well as some unusual things like Purple Podded Peas. Lots of fun varieties of tomatoes if you are inclined to starting seeds indoors, but mostly seeds which can be direct sown.

In addition, there will be seeds donated from gardeners who have collected from their own gardens.

There will also be a "free" table for collected seeds, or your left-over seeds from last year. We cannot vouch for the viability of these seeds, but there may be some real winners. If you contributing seeds, it would be nice to have a picture or description of the plant it will produce.

Get some great seeds and at the same time support a local nonprofit which increases access to local produce through food bank donations and classes.

Community Harvest members can pre-order seeds which can be picked up at the event, or shipped by February 12.
