Natural Gardeners Club Seed Exchange

It’s Seed Exchange time. The Natural Gardeners Club will be having its annual Seed Exchange at the next club Gathering, on April 9. Anyone interested is welcome to attend at the Bloebaum-Fuller Annex, across from the Knox County Public Library on Seventh St. in Vincennes. The meeting and exchange will take place approximately 7 p.m. Eastern. Please see the suggestions below for participating in the seed exchange.

The meeting will be preceded by a pitch-in dinner from 6 to 7 p.m. eastern. Those wanting to participate in the dinner need only bring food to share and their own beverages. Bringing ones own table service is a sustainable option, but disposable items will be available.

For the Seed Exchange:

• Please be sure your seeds are clearly labeled with the variety name. Information about growing is appreciated, as well as the “packed for” date, or the date of seed collection.

• You can bring packets of seed that you don’t need, or extra seed (bulk or loose) that you have bought or saved from the previous year.

• If you are bringing seed that is not already in a packet, please do one of the following: 1. provide items (envelopes, bags, etc.) for other people to use for your offered seed; 2. sort your seed into labeled packages to be given away.

• Before leaving, please collect any of your unclaimed seed to take home.

Please feel free to come even if you do not have seed to share. There is usually a lot of seed to give away.

The Natural Gardeners Club is a network of people in the general Vincennes area who are interested in organic gardening and sustainable living. We share stories, experiences, questions, advice, resources, harvest and food. Members range in experience from long-time gardeners to those just thinking about gardening. This is a casual club with no dues or officers, though members sometimes participate in area events and projects.

For more information, or to be added to the contact list, email or call 812-881-8987 (please leave a voice message). Also, there is a Natural Gardeners Club Facebook page.
