Food Not Lawns,Cleveland 5th Annual Seed Swap

If you are interested in gardening, community, food security, permaculture, seed saving and sharing, this is the place for you! Bring saved seeds if you have them, or consider what you might swap for seeds in goods or service, but come anyway. We will have 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 will talk about DIY wood fired greenhouse heaters and outdoor canning stoves and building with mud. Glenn Gall, Permaculturist, carbon farmer and teacher, will introduce an upcoming workshop with a brief discussion on "What is Really Good Compost and How To Make It", members of FNL Cleveland, displaying recent and successful sheet mulch lawn conversions, Kent Food Not Lawns and (hopefully) Columbus Food Not Lawns. Refreshments are potluck. Please bring a dish to share ( and indicate if it is vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free or meat). Also, collecting non-perishable food donation for Hts. Emergency Food Bank. There will be a Freecycle table available to bring or take useful items. Residue will be donated. Please label saved seed with as much pertinent info as possible. We will have envelopes and labels available. 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.
