Seed Swaps

Anyone ever host/attend a seedling swap?

23 Apr 2008

Hi all, This year I want to have a safe (non GMO, open-pollinated)-seedling swap at my farm’s big opening day. The only trouble is that I’ve never even been to one before! Does anyone have any advice on how it should work? I’m thinking each person should bring a minimum of 12 plants. Should I have everyone just set up the plants and you get as many as you bring? Should there be limits on how many of each kind each person can get? Is there an optimal number of folks to do this with? Any help would be greatly appreciated, and anyone near me in PA, come on and join the fun! :)

The seedy sunday website has a nice section on how to run your own swap – it’s more about organising a seed swap, but there could be some helpful tips in there worth considering for your seedling swap.

Sounds like its going to be a stack of fun – let us know how the day goes!

Thanks Nic! The Seedy Sunday site is great, and it’s inspired me to perhaps host a true seed swap in the fall. :)
