Exhibitions halls
seed swap

Seed & Plant Swap

Spring vegetables

Bring seeds & plants to the exhibition hall any hours of the fair! There will be a large variety of plants or seeds to swap!

No. This doesn’t mean that you and the old man take a bite of watermelon and then “swap seeds” (wink wink). This is an honest to goodness chance to bring in your extra seeds and trade ‘em for some new seeds for your garden. We will have a table or two in the exhibit hall available for anyone who would like to bring in, or take, some extra seeds. The seeds (or plants) should be clearly marked as to what they are. Also, the year the seeds were harvested (if known).

Seeds and plants will be free for the taking. Please take only what you need or can use. Leave a few for others to share and enjoy. Sharing seeds can be a fun way to bring your gardens some diversity. Access to the seed/plant swap will be during normal exhibit hall hours.
