Let’s share our dreams and plans for the coming growing season in the form of seeds and strengthen the sharing economy!

Do you have more of something than you need?  Are you interested in learning about new and unusual varieties and trying them out?  This is a great opportunity for you to do both.  Bring your over-large packets that you purchased, and seeds you saved from your own gardens and let’s spread the wealth.

Also, there will be seeds offered from Strawbery Banke’s historic gardens!

Please be on time so you won’t miss the introductions when everyone gets to explain what they brought.

COST: Free if you are already attending the Seed to Soil Conference, otherwise there is a suggested donation of $5-10.

This event is cosponsored by Slow Food Seacoast, & Seacoast Waldorf School.
