Master Gardeners Host Seed Swap
March 26 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
The Cornell Master Gardeners are excited to host our first Seed Swap on Saturday March 26, 2022.The swap will run from 1:00pm-3:00pm and be held at Cornell Cooperative Extension Ulster County at 232 Plaza Road in Kingston.
Gardeners can share seeds they’ve harvested from their own plants, seeds from crops they no longer care to grow, or leftover seeds they don’t have time to use. The seed swap is a great opportunity to exchange your extra viable seeds and seek new varieties of vegetables and ornamentals. Many of our perennials and native plants are best sown in late winter and early spring.
Bring your extra seeds in envelopes labeled with the type, variety, if it was purchased or saved yourself and any helpful growing instructions. We will have extra envelopes at the swap. Some seed varieties may be limited but as we have found out from our plant swap, we never know in advance what is coming in. Don’t have any seeds to swap? No problem, we are just asking for a fifty cent donation for each pack that you take (cash only).
The Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer questions.
The event is free but registration is required since space is limited. You can review the Seed Swap Guidelines and register on our website. COVID-19 is still a risk, all attendees must wear a mask.
