On National Seed Swap Day this year -- January 30, 2021 -- we will host a free, LIVE chat from 2:00-4:00pm Eastern Time for seed swappers everywhere. We will explore ways to hold in-person seed swap events during the COVID-19 pandemic and other options for safely swapping seeds. This event will feature surprises and special guests talking about everything seed-related from seed collecting tips to easy propagating tricks.

We hope you can join us for the live session, but if you cannot, we will be recording the event and have it available on YouTube to view anytime. 

Here is our tentative* schedule for the live Seed Swap Day event:
2:00pm Welcome Remarks
2:15pm Experienced Seed Swappers will chat as a group about how to run a SAFE seed swap and seed swapping alternatives during the COVID-19 pandemic.
3:00pm Maureen Farmer of The Farmer's Garden will share some seed starting tips.
3:30pm Mike Lizotte of American Meadows seed company will give the perspective of seed suppliers and will address the rumored "seed shortage."
3:55pm Ending Remarks
*Note that as with all live events, things may switch and change at the last minute.

Consider hosting your own seed swap! Whether just among your neighbors, your garden club/plant society, or your wider community, a seed swap can be a terrific way to get lots of seeds, to meet new friends, and to learn a great deal about what grows best in our area. For a successful swap, be sure to share tips about how to conduct swap seeds with your attendees.

If you plan on holding an in-person seed swap at anytime later this year, please let us know by emailing KathyJentz@gmail.com, so we can add you to our listing by so we can add you in.

If you attend or hold a seed swap on January 30 or anytime later on, remember to use #SeedSwapDay on your social media so we can track and re-share your posts.
