SEED SWAP AT BAYVIEW CORNER

Sunday, February 4, Bayview Hall, 1 to 5 p.m.

Kevin Bodle is setting up a swap similar to one he did three years ago. Look for more information around the south end. He says, “We believe that Seeds are a powerful community binder and would love to see both these Swaps flourish, and get the folks of Whidbey growing their own food through local plants and seeds."

Slow Food Whidbey Island will have a table at the event and will look forward to seeing you there!

Bring seeds, plants, cuttings and garden know-how to swap and share in our first community Seed Swap.  In partnership with local WSU Extension Master Gardeners, South Whidbey Tilth and Slow Food Whidbey Island, Seed Swaps are events where gardeners meet to exchange seeds and are great ways to learn about local seeds and build community around seed sharing. Designed for gardening newbies and master gardeners alike, this Swap will provide people an opportunity to get seeds from other local growers and share seeds from their own local harvest. Be a part of the Whidbey Island seed saving movement and learn to pass onto future generations.
