Feb 23: Seed and Plant Swap

A Celebration of Seeds: Seventh Annual Seed and Plant Swap

This free event features a selection of seeds and plants for the public and hands-on activities for children and teens! There's a Seed Swap (South Wing Reading Room/Oversized Room), tabling by
partner organizations (upstairs near Oversized Room), children's activities (Children's Room), and a Seed Bomb Workshop (TeenSpace).

If you have seedlings, plant cuttings to propagate, or other live plants, feel free to bring those to share as well. It's helpful if they're packaged in a way that the soil is contained and they can be taken home easily by other swappers. Household items such as cut-up egg cartons, small yogurt containers, or even small sandwich bags could be a helpful, reusable option. If you have further questions, please email one of the event organizers, alyssa@growpittsburgh.org.

If you’re a newcomer to the world of gardening, or someone seeking additional skills, seed saving and gardening experts will be on hand to answer gardening questions throughout the event. Share your Seed Stories, snap a photo using the library’s mobile photo booth, and enter the free raffle with the ticket you receive at sign-in!

11-3 p.m. at Carnegie Library (main branch, in Oakland).  Seed-bringers can come at 10:45 with contributions.  Please register in advance (by Monday the 18th) here.  Sponsored by Grow Pittsburgh, Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, and Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.
