Solstice Seed Swap

Let’s celebrate the winter solstice this Sunday by swapping seeds and cuttings with our friends and neighbors. Now is the time to start planning our spring gardens; exchanging locally saved seeds that are already acclimated to your specific region is an ideal beginning.

Here in San Francisco there will be a Solstice Seed Swap held at the Exploratorium (3601 Lyon Street) from 3-5pm, which has been organized by local artist and community gardener Bill Basquin. Bring seeds (or rooted cuttings) to share, or just come by to socialize with your fellow humans. There will be snacks as well as 2-D and 3-D photographic projections by Johunna Greyson, Greta Snider and Bill Basquin at 3:30pm.

If you are not in the Bay Area you can still swap seeds and cuttings with your fellow citizens on this winter solstice. Celebrate all that is alive and start growing your own food today.
