Food Not Lawns,Cleveland 6th Annual Seed Swap
Event for people interested in gardening, community, food security, permaculture, seed saving and sharing.
Bring saved seeds if you have them, or consider what you might swap for seeds in goods or service, but come anyway. There will be starter seeds available and lots of information to share. We have signed the Safe Seed Pledge and will not knowingly share gmo/Monsanto owned seed.
Joining us will be: Judi Strauss, of The Charmed Kitchen,with herbs, books and more for sample and sale, Chris McClellan, aka Uncle Mud, and the Cleveland Natural Builders, Glenn Gall, permaculturist, carbon farmer and teacher, presenting 'Plant Genetics -- Food For Thought. Considerations of yield, disease resistance, and nutrition -- how much do varieties matter? ' Don Abbott, aka The Snarky Gardener, with seeds and literature.
Please label saved seed with as much pertinent info as possible. Seed Savers, who are willing, will be with their seeds at tables, to discuss traits, growing conditions, stories about them, and aspects of seed saving. Donated seed will be available and asked to be considered a "loan" to be returned, if possible, the following swap. The completed Saved Seed Inventory is available for perusal, or check it out online, at: bit.ly/seedsave .
Freecycle info: Please bring gently used (or new) items to donate/swap. If you have items left at the end of the day, take them home or leave them for donation pick-up Monday morning. This event is free (donations gratefully accepted), child-friendly, on a bus-line and handicapped accessible. Volunteers are needed to help set up and clean up.
