We encourage attendance whether you are a first-time gardener or a seasoned expert.Please bring small, well-marked packets of vegetables, herbs, and native seeds. If you don’t have any seeds to contribute to the exchange, come anyway! Some people will simply share their seeds and the interesting stories that come with them.
