The Ojai Seed and Plant Swap is coming up soon! This event is open to all – seed savers and seed planters alike. Generally most seeds are freely offered by hobbyists and professionals although there are some sales/donation requests for certain potted plants and starts and some commercially packaged seed. There is a $5 donation request at the door to support the sponsors. Seed swaps are a special kind of potlatch that we don’t see a lot of these days especially for general public events. While one could easily score a hundred dollars worth of free seed, the knowledge of what to do with those seeds is also freely shared by many experienced gardeners and farmers, which probably is of incalculably higher value. This is an especially rich community event in that way. Hope to see you there on February 27th!
