Seed Swap with Alexy

  • Christy Webber Farm and Garden 2833 West Chicago Avenue Chicago, IL, 60612 United States (map)

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.
