We may be locked in the depths of winter for a few more weeks, but it’s already time to start planning your garden. Before you order anything from the seed catalogs, see what your neighbors are sharing at a local seed swap.
Jan. 25 is National Seed Swap Day, and, in celebration, the West Vincent Township Sustainability Committee and the Chester County Environmental Agricultural Coalition are hosting their fourth annual seed swap event.
Stop by the Chester County Seed Swap this Saturday in West Vincent Township. The event will be held at the West Vincent Township Building located at 729 St. Matthews Road in Chester Springs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is free to anyone interested in sustainable growing, farming, and gardening.
Whether you’ve saved seeds from last year’s garden or not, visit the seed swap to learn more about heirloom plant varieties, discuss how to save and preserve seeds, swap catalogs, and share your experience with other gardeners both new and experienced.
Admission to the Chester County Seed Swap is free, and refreshments will be provided.
