Join us for a city-wide seed and story swap where YOU will have an opportunity to exchange seeds, find new ones to grow this spring, check out a library card from the Hull-House Seed Library, share food and agricultural stories (there will be a videographer there to record them!), and discover new ways to nourish a sustainable food system.
If you have seeds that you saved from last year, bring ‘em along. Have no seeds? — Come anyway and learn about saving, sowing, and growing seeds (list of workshops below)!
All are welcome: novice gardeners, expert seed savers, youth, families, and students.
No one will leave without seeds!
