08 Feb Eighth Annual Seed Swap hosted by Sammamish Valley Alliance & 21 Acres; March 5-30, 2024
Sammamish Valley Alliance and 21 Acres are partnering for the eighth annual Sammamish Valley Seed Swap, Saturday, March 5 through Saturday, March 30, 2024, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Hosted at 21 Acres in Woodinville, this event is free for all gardeners, small-scale farmers and for anyone interested in seeds even if you’re not planting this year. Come to the alcove outside the 21 Acres Farm Market each day of the swap to take seeds or leave seeds at this self-serve seed swap.
Whether, you’ve enjoyed a seed swap in the past, or you’ve never been to one, keep reading for this year’s information, guidelines and how to prepare.
Bring your saved seeds either in their original commercial packaging or your own well-marked container (no taller than 4-7/8”). Include the plant name, year collected, and planting and growing information. Seeds should be cleaned of hulls and debris, non-GMO, non-hybrid, and not older than 3 years. Sort your donated seeds into the labeled boxes by plant category and species.
Plan to take only the seeds that you intend to plant. Bring recycled envelopes or little jars, pill bottles baggies along with a pen and marker and tape to label your seeds with name and any information on the original container
Plant Your Spring Garden:
Have fun with family, friends and neighbors as you sow and tend to your spring garden. Come back often over the month to see what’s new in the offerings. Take photos and share!
Remaining seeds after the event will be donated to local, community gardeners. Happy growing! 21 Acres is located at 13701 NE 171st St., Woodinville, WA. For more information e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and put Seed Swap in the subject line.
