Seed Swap, Potluck & Story Share

Thursday, February 8, 2018

Every seed has a story – the land and climate that has shaped them, the hands that carried them from one place to the next, and the people’s lives they touched along the way.

For Harvest Pierce County’s 6th annual Seed Swap, we are celebrating these stories and inviting folks from Pierce County share some of theirs. If you have a seed whose history you believe is story-worthy, please email micaelac@piercecd.org or call (253)306-3457 to sign up for 5 minutes at the microphone. 

 The evening will include a traditional seed swap and potluck. The seed swap will work something like this: bring any seeds you have saved to share, left-over from last season, Please do us a favor and:
  • Divide your seeds
  • Label your seeds with Variety and Type
  • Tell us how old your seeds are (or write unknown if they are quite old)
  • If possible, please bring a photo of the plant as there will be a multi-lingual event
When you arrive, please divide your seeds by seed types (signs will be placed around the room). After eating and sorting are through, we then call each table up one at a time. HPC will be "seeding" the seeds with some donations we have received from local seed companies.
