Saturday, February 27th
1 to 4 p.m.
414 E. Ojai Ave., Ojai, California 93023
Bring stories, seeds, cuttings, or starts to share, and join in a tradition as old as agriculture itself.
$5 suggested donation at the door.
There will be seeds and plants available for sale, too.
This 5th Annual Event is open to all – seed savers and seed planters alike. Generally, most seeds are freely offered by hobbyists and professionals, although there are some sales/donation requests for certain potted plants and starts, and some commercially packaged seed. For this event, there is a $5 donation request at the door to support the sponsors.
Seed swaps are an uncanny kind of potlatch that we don’t see a lot of these days, especially for general public events.
While one could easily score a hundred dollars worth of free seed, the knowledge of what to do with those seeds is also freely shared by many experienced gardeners and farmers there, which probably is an of incalculably higher value — it is an especially rich community in that way.
