Santa Barbara Permaculture NetworkJoin Santa Barbara Permaculture Network as it hosts the 7th Annual Santa Barbara Community Seed Swap on Sunday, January 25, from 11am-3pm, at the downtown Santa Barbara Central Library, Faulkner Gallery.
More than 400 people attended last year, sharing seeds and knowledge with other backyard gardeners, plant lovers, beekeepers and farmers. Come be a part of this seed saving movement, making sure that locally adapted varieties of seed & plants are passed on to future generations. Special speakers, children activities & live music!
Local groups will table, including the Santa Barbara Seed Saving Guild who will share valuable seed saving techniques and encourage local gardeners to grow out and harvest some of their best seeds for future gardens and seed swaps, making us a truly food secure community. Seed saving is a fun and easy way to connect to the circle of life.
Bring seeds, plants, cuttings, and garden knowledge to swap.
