Community Seed Swap - Seed Saving 101

3:30 PM – 6:30 PM
Lynnwood Library


Come join your fellow edible gardening neighbors for an afternoon of seed sharing and learning.

Attendees are urged to bring seeds to share, but it is not required. This event is FREE and open to all. We will try and have enough seeds for everyone to take some home.

We will have free seed catalogs and local gardening resources available as well!

How to participate in the seed swap

If you bring seeds to share:

  • Share only seeds of vegetable, herbs, and flowers that your fellow gardeners would grow from seed.
  • If donating home-saved seed, please winnow and clean off the stems or stalks as much as possible and bring only the seed.
  • All shared seed should be fresh, within three years of purchase or saving.
  • Label all seed donations with seed type, variety if known, and year it was grown/saved.

To collect seeds at the exchange, please bring your own envelopes (such as small coin envelopes) or other small containers to hold seeds. We will have a limited supply of envelopes available.

With the cost of vegetable seeds these days, saving your own garden seeds is like printing your own money! This class will cover seed saving fundamentals, including seed harvesting and storage. The information covered is intended for edible gardeners and seed savers and those looking to expand their seed-saving knowledge.
