Join Us for Seeds and Biscuits on March 5
Get ready for growing season! Join us for two fun events on March 5 at the Broadway Armory, 5917 North Broadway in Chicago:
- Eighth Annual Seed Swap, 1-4pm (Armory Ballroom)
- “Biscuits & Bloodys” Brunch, noon-2pm (PGP Community Cooking School)
The Seed Swap, held from 1 to 4 pm in the second floor Armory Ballroom, is free and open to the public, but registration is encouraged. Attendees are invited to bring leftover seed packets or seeds saved from their gardens to share. The event will also include several free demonstrations to help you start and grow your seeds.
This year will also feature a “Biscuits & Bloodys” fundraiser brunch sponsored by the PGP Board of Directors from noon to 2 pm in the PGP Community Cooking School, just down the hall from the Seed Swap. Tickets are $15 (online or at the door) and include a biscuit and gravy, homemade jam and pickles and a complimentary Bloody Mary with all the fixings. Gluten-free and vegetarian options will be available.
Last year’s seed swap brought more than 150 gardeners eager to trade seeds from a variety of vendors, as well as seeds saved by individual gardeners. In addition to a wide selection of seeds to share, there will also be free seed sowing and worm bin demonstrations, garden books and merchandise for purchase and garden experts to offer helpful hints and answer questions.
