Try a new vegetable or flower variety. Find a home for your extra seeds or plant starts. Hang out with us and other gardeners to swap and talk about plant varieties and seed saving. We hope this Startup event will grow into a community.

We will have seed for you to take home to your garden. If you have extra seed, bring it along to share with other gardeners. If you have plant starts or cuttings to share, bring them too. Maybe they will find a new home.
We will have seeds available to take home.
We welcome people to trade or donate seeds, small plants, bulbs, or tubers..
        We welcome excess seed purchased by gardeners.
        We especially encourage seeds saved by gardeners.
Some rules:
    No GMO seed or plants.
    No treated seed.
    No seeds from the Noxious Weed list.
    Plants and plant material must be disease-free, healthy, and in good condition.
    Seed and plant material must be clearly labeled.
    Trades and donations only. No seeds are to be bought or sold.
Dr. Maze’s Farm and The Herbfarm are seed sponsors, donating seed to get things going. Apple Farm Village, the host sponsor, has shops, art, and wine tastings to distract you from the seeds.
The Seed Swap is part of the Sammamish Valley Spring Celebration (SammamishValley.org). There are nine additional farms and other stops participating in the Sammamish Valley Spring Celebration, so plan to spend some time exploring the valley. We hope to see you there!
