Swap Seeds with The Peterson Garden Project

February 22 2012 - 2:20 PM

Peterson Garden Project seed swapSpring is coming, we promise. As evidence of the fact, The Peterson Garden Project will host a seed swap on March 4 from 2 to 5 PM. It's a chance to exchange some of your favorite fruits, vegetables, and herbs for next season's "wish list." Trade your fantastic tomatoes for new cucumbers, or swap kale for carrots.

In addition to swapping seeds, attendees can also chat with representatives from the Peterson Garden Project about the three new community gardens planned for 2012, and will receive information on edible seeds, planting, and heirloom varieties. There is no cost to attend the seed swap, which will take place at Swedish Covenant Hospital’s Galter Pavilion, Second Floor, 5140 N. California.

Sign-ups for community plots for spring and summer of 2012 will be available beginning in mid-March, so stay connected with the Peterson Garden Project via Facebook for the latest.
