We’re so excited for the 2019 Seed Swap! After such success last year, our team has been working hard to make this year stand out. Our AmeriCorps member, Emma Keele, is part of the planning team, and she shared some of the best parts to be featured this year.

“There are going to be tons of donated seeds provided by the Borough. There will also be multiple vendors with educational materials, a reading corner with gardening books provided by the library, and several door prizes!”

Make sure to come out and take advantage of all these perks, details below.


The second annual Community Seed Swap: Bring seeds to swap, learn about local community gardens and learn how to make your own seed tape.


Anyone who is interested in gardening. New to gardening. Garden curious. Don’t have seeds to share? No problem, we’ll have plenty!
