Seed and Plant Exchange

Participants are encouraged but not required to bring seeds and young plants to share. Everyone may take home as many seeds or plants as they can use in the coming year, regardless of what they bring. In addition to the free exchange, local companies will be on hand to sell seeds, plants, and garden-related services, and a number of local non-profit organizations will offer educational materials on topics ranging from native plants to healthcare. Several workshops will teach interested attendees about seed saving and other garden topics, live music will be provided by local bands, and there will be locally sourced food and raffle tickets for sale at a reasonable price to help cover the costs of the event. Anyone interested in bringing seeds or plants to the event is encouraged to provide detailed labels which include species name, variety name, and for seeds the year and location the seed was produced. Anyone interested in taking home seeds or plants is encouraged to bring old seed envelopes, bags and boxes for re-use, although some will be provided for those who do not bring their own. Participants are also encouraged to take care not to bring or take home invasive plants or weeds. The event is free and all are welcome. Lots of experienced farmers and gardeners will be there, along with plenty of novices. Participants should come with questions, share knowledge and ideas, and prepare to grow something this year. Permaculture is a set of principles and practices for designing human landscapes with the diversity and resilience of natural ecosystems. The Humboldt Permaculture Guild is an all-volunteer group of local residents with the goal of promoting permaculture-related practices and ideas in Humboldt County and surrounding areas.
