SEBASTOPOL: Chance to swap, share seeds with your neighbors

Bring any excess seeds you have saved either from your own garden or from commercial packs to a community swap on Feb. 28.

Put on by the West County Community Seed Exchange, the swap is a chance to gather interesting seed for your spring planting and to share extra seed with your neighbors, all at no charge.

But even if you don't have seed to share, backyard gardeners are welcome to come by to gather seed. Those brining seed to share get to enter early, at 6:30 p.m., for the best selection.

The swap opens to the general public from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

People are asked to label all seed so people know what they are getting and when and how to grow it.

Seed experts will be available to answer questions and demonstrate seed cleaning.

The event will be held at the Sebastopol Grange, 6000 Highway 12, Sebastopol. Entry is free.

The event is put on by the West County Community Seed Exchange, the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center and the Daily Acts organization.
