Save a few special winter squash seeds for me at this Sundays Seed-Swap!

It is fine to come to part of the swap afternoon, but be there by or before 12:30 to be part of the opening circle and learning about the seed-swap etiquettes.

If you want to pass on your older commercial seeds, be sure to just bring open-pollinated varieties. I often scatter my older seeds in the field or on cover crop beds. We all love to know the origins of your self-saved seeds!

People with No Seeds are Welcome!
There will be an abundance of seeds to exchange, and also to share!

I'll be there in spirit!
