Seed Swap with Alexy

Seed Swap with Alexy

  • Christy Webber Farm and Garden (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Bring your leftover seed packets or self-saved seeds to share. Join us to browse a selection of seeds, and take home a variety to plant this spring. If you don’t have seeds to offer, come anyway! All are welcome to attend. 

Event is free—reserve your spot here

Here are some helpful guidelines about the seed swap. 

—Edible and ornamental seeds welcome.
—Bring seeds you have saved in a clearly labeled baggie or envelope.
—Do not bring seeds collected from hybrid plants, as they won't grow true to type.
—Bring seed that is viable—in other words, not too old. Most seeds will remain viable for 2-4 years if kept in a cool, dry place, out of the light. Some seeds (onions, leeks, parsnips, celery, spinach) are only good for a year unless stored especially well.
—Make sure your seeds are clearly labeled with crop type, variety name, and the date they were packaged/harvested.

Christy Webber Farm and Garden have donated a large amount of seeds for the sharing and will be offering 15% off all seed starting tools and kits. Donations for the organizer will be accepted during event.

Slow Food Chicago: Food Book Club

Slow Food Chicago: Food Book Club

Join us for our final food book club meeting of 2018 with a joint discussion August's read "The Seed Underground" by Janisse Ray and of "Letters to a Young Farmer." We will be meeting at the Christy Webber Farm & Garden Center (in their upstairs loft space) on Monday 10/29 at 6pm. Feel free to bring a snack or small dish to share as we discuss this read full of wisdom surrounding the future of food and farming. All are welcome. Please RSVP to katie.johnson@slowfoodchicago.org.

Letters to a Young Farmer is for everyone who appreciates good food grown with respect for the earth, people, animals, and community. Three dozen esteemed writers, farmers, chefs, activists, and visionaries address the highs and lows of farming life—as well as larger questions of how our food is produced and consumed—in vivid and personal detail. Barbara Kingsolver speaks to the tribe of farmers—some born to it, many self-selected—with love, admiration, and regret. Dan Barber traces the rediscovery of lost grains and foodways. Michael Pollan bridges the chasm between agriculture and nature. Bill McKibben connects the early human quest for beer to the modern challenge of farming in a rapidly changing climate. Congresswoman Chellie Pingree probes the politics of being a young farmer today. Farmer Mas Masumoto passes on family secrets to his daughter—and not-soon-forgotten stories to us all. Other contributors include Temple Grandin, Verlyn Klinkenborg, Wendell Berry, Rick Bayless, and Marion Nestle.

Letters to a Young Farmer is both a compelling history and a vital road map—a reckoning of how we eat and farm; how the two can come together to build a more sustainable future; and why now, more than ever before, we need farmers.
