Fremont Public Library

Meeting Room A & B

Attention all gardeners!

Do you save seed from your vegetable, herb, and flower garden every year? Want to share the bounty with your neighbors, and try out some of their favorites? Join us at our first annual seed swap. Bring your open-pollinated or heirloom seeds (no hybrids, since they don't breed true!) to trade. 

Make sure each one is labeled with who collected it, the year it was collected, and the genus and species or common name, and the variety (if known). 

We will collect donations for the second season of the Fremont Public Library Seed Library at the end of the event, if you care to donate some of what remains.

Small envelopes will be available for sharers, if you bring your seeds in bulk packages.
