5 Reasons to Attend the Peterson Garden Project Seed Swap
The 8th Annual Peterson Garden Project Seed Swap is coming up on Sunday, March 5, 2017. Join us (and more than 150 gardeners) in the 2nd Floor Ballroom at Broadway Armory to start selecting seeds for your garden.
Need a little more incentive to join us next Sunday? OK, here are five more reasons you should come to the seed swap:
Meet fellow gardeners: Selecting seeds for your garden may be fun but swapping seeds with fellow gardeners is practically a party. It may be too early to get our hands dirty, but we can definitely “get in the weeds” about what we’re all planning to grow this year.
Unique seeds: Select from seeds from Baker Creek, Seed Savers Exchange, Botanical Interests, Renee’s Garden, Hudson Valley Seed Library, and Lake Valley Seed Company. Plus, you’ll find seeds saved from individual gardens and the PGP Seed Saving Garden.
Grow something new: Have you been growing the same beans for the past few years? Swap them out with something new to you. We encourage gardeners to bring saved seeds to swap. You can also bring leftover new or opened seed packets.
Get help: Expert Gardeners will be at the seed swap to answer questions and offer sowing tips. We’ll also have demonstrations for winter/early spring seed sowing, homemade seed starting mix, and harvesting compost from worm bins.
See the Community Cooking School: The seed swapping will be held in the 2nd Floor Ballroom at Broadway Armory – just down the hall from the Peterson Garden Project Community Cooking School, where there will be a Biscuits and Bloodys brunch right before the swap. If you only know us from our gardens, this is a perfect chance to get a peek at the Community Cooking School.
