Cultivate the City is hosting a seedling swap! Get the perfect start to this growing season and network with other urban gardeners right in your neighborhood. This is a face-to-face event and a great opportunity to not only score some rare seedlings to jumpstart your garden, but an excellent change to talk with other seasoned gardeners and learn about what can grow best in our unique microclimates. There is a limited enrollment of 50 participants and we expect to sell-out, so be sure to register early!
Swap will start promptly at 12:30 so please arrive a little early, and have your seedlings properly labeled. Those who bring seedlings to share will have first dibs, but everyone will get a chance to select something. We will also have a few door prizes donated by partners which will be raffled off to attendees. We plan to wrap up by 1:30, so you'll have the rest of the day to get your seeds started and do some early spring work in the garden! In case you don't find what you are looking for, we will have several seedlings and full size plants that we've kept thriving all winter long, and we have a great new stock of container vegetable and unique hot pepper seeds available for purchase.
This event is offered for free with the support of our generous sponsors and of course our amazing volunteers for helping coordinate! If you are able to, please consider volunteering to help us on the day of the event. Thank you!
**Any remaining seedlings from the swap will be donated to local school gardens.
