Seed Swap

Thu, February 21, 2019 6:00 P.M.
Culinary Literacy Center at Parkway Central Library

Calling all gardeners, seed keepers, and heirloom enthusiasts! Join the Culinary Literacy Center and the Philadelphia Seed Exchange at Parkway Central Library on February 21. Hear from farmers from Mill Creek Farm (West Philly), Sankofa Community Farm at Bartram's Garden (Southwest Philly), Urban Tree Connection (West Philly), and more. These groups integrate seed keeping and storytelling into their community food sovereignty efforts, and offer culturally important seeds through the Truelove Seeds online catalog. 

Bring your own seed, plant starts and plant cuttings for your favorite cooking greens, beans, grains, root vegetables and culinary herbs to share. Do any of your seeds or plants have interesting stories? Please share those as well! Information on the practices, traditions and stories of seed saving will be available. Space is limited; first come, first served. Registration is found on the Eventbrite website.
