The fall planting season is almost here! Join us at Sunset Library on Wednesday, Aug. 28 for Seed Swap, 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. Share seeds and seed starts, meet local gardeners and exchange gardening tips. Now in its sixth year at Sunset, the free Seed Swap is great for anyone with an interest in gardening, learning from other gardeners’ experiences and discovering new seeds to try growing at home.
Some seeds that may be available for the Fall Seed Swap are anything lettuce-related (lettuce, cabbage, kale, mustard greens, chard, spinach), onions, garlic, green onion, leeks, carrots, peas and all varieties of herbs. There are also often sunflowers and other wildflowers, as well as loofah seeds - which turn into the big loofahs you use in the shower.
Envelopes and markers will be provided. A raffle will be held. Win a Seed Swap T-Shirt and a gardening book! The event is open to the public and you don’t have to bring your own seeds to participate. No registration is required.
