Interested in hosting a seed interchange. This guide will help you organize your swap while educating people about the basics of seed saving.
Our first semi-annual seed swap was March 22, 2010. Here are some of thephotos. Our intention at Richmond Grows is to support other communities in having seed swaps and libraries. (We're having difficulty uploading files to our website. If you want us to send you the table signs for our swaps, which are organized by families and translated into Spanish, please email us at RichmondGrows@gmail.com.) We are now co-hosting a seed swap with BASIL (Bay Area Seed Interchange Library in Berkeley) along with several other local seed libraries.
Steps: 1. Promote event 2. Create table signs 3. Create educational posters 4. Get your volunteers 5. Day of the event 6. Clean up
We organized our tables, as well as our library, by plant families.
