2021 Distanced Seed Exchange

February 23, 2021 @ 8:00 am - March 6, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

A reinvention of Saint John’s annual seed swap for pandemic times. This year’s swap will be a seed drop-off followed by pick-up of a “take-out” style bag with a variety of seeds at the same location. Drop off seeds and be entered to win one of two prizes, including a gift card for Cedar Crest Gardens.

Here is how to participate:
(1) Drop-off your seeds to be shared at one of the exchange sites from Feb. 22 to Feb. 26.
Please label seeds with your name, type of seed, and year they were harvested or purchased.
(2) Return to your chosen site from March 1 to 5 to pick up a mixed bag of seeds. The seed fairies will be repackaging and doing quality control as needed over the weekend. First come first served for pick-up. Please one bag per person.
(3) Get excited for spring and the start of a new gardening season!
Saint John Free Public Library will beĀ  a drop-off location for the 2021 Distanced Seed Exchanged!
Starting February 23 you can drop your seeds off at the Central Branch in Market Square. New seeds will be available for pickup starting March 2nd. For more information please visit the event page.
