Seed Swap Social!

Wednesday, February 25th

4:30-6:30pm

We had so much fun last year hosting a seed swap, that we will be bringing it back this year. Bring seeds saved from your own garden, or seed packets you are ready to part ways with. We will have a set up in the Shafer Home with seeded cookies and tea to share! Please bring your seeds labeled and dated. YGP will provide baggies and additional labeling supplies. Join us anytime between 4:30 and 6:30pm.

No RSVP needed, but questions welcome! Give us a jingle!
