Join Tilth Alliance, the Friends of Rainier Beach Urban Farm & Wetlands, the Garden Hotline, and the Community Kitchen Meals program for a delightful and delicious afternoon seed swap! Bring your extra seeds, your garden questions and your appetite.

This year we are partnering with the King County Seed Lending Library (KCSLL), a community of seed savers and sharers located in the greater Seattle area. Find out more about KCSLL here.

What is a community seed swap? A family-friendly gathering for gardeners of all experience levels to share seeds, gardening resources and connect with each other. Bring your garden-saved seeds, excess seeds you have from opened packets or just yourself if you’re just getting started. We’ll have some seeds to share, too.

Our Community Kitchen Meals team will be serving a warm meal made with local seeds! Think bean soup, seeded crackers and something sweet. We’ll be sharing recipes so you can recreate them at home.

The Seed Swap tables will have all kinds of seeds for your edible, medicinal and floral gardens. We welcome you to add your labeled extra seeds to the mix and take lots home too. We’ll have other family activities, educational information to share, and the Garden Hotline will be there to answer all your gardening questions right on the spot.

Guidelines for bringing seeds to share:

  • Please make sure seeds are labeled with crop and variety name and date.
  • Please only bring seeds that are not too old to plant (2021 or later is a good guideline).
  • Feel free to bring cuttings or divisions from garden plants, too.

You don’t have to bring seeds to enjoy this event – we’ll have plenty to share. See you there!

No registration required. RSVP below appreciated but not required.
Rain or shine event.
