Gratitude to all the Seed Swap Volunteers!
To whomever will organize the next 7 years of a January Community Seed Swap, I"m willing to be a 'coach' or 'consultant"!
Farmer Meghan, thanks for your exceptional help, and a pleasure to meet you.

Seed Update! We have received donations from both Irish Eye Seeds, and Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds! Weds pm volunteers met and started sorting seeds.
If you know of a garden group that donates either their plant, seeds, or produce, with a mission that includes education & community nourishment, let us know.
Each year prior to the swap we make up a few special bags of seeds and donate to these groups prior to the swap. (Examples are Common Threads Farm & York Garden Farm).
