Free Event: Fifth Annual Santa Barbara Community Seed Swap, Jan. 27
January 24, 2013 -
The Fifth Annual Santa Barbara Community Seed Swap will be held on Sunday, Jan. 27, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
More than 400 people attended last year, sharing seeds and knowledge with other backyard gardeners, plant lovers, and farmers. Be a part of this seed-saving movement, to ensure that locally adapted varieties of seeds and plants are passed on to future generations. Children are welcome! Bring seeds, plants, cuttings and garden knowledge to swap. Don't have these? Then come get seeds Seeds to sow. Seeds to grow. Seeds to harvest. Seeds to save and share next year.
There will be activities for all ages: story hour, crafts, seed ball making, seed saving lessons, seed envelope making, worm composting, instruction about bare root trees, and music that will have your toes tapping. Look for special speakers throughout the day and enjoy a gathering of garden friends old and new. The Lexicon of Sustainability will be displayed on the patio area in front of the Library.

The event is sponsored by Santa Barbara City College Center for Sustainability and SOL Food Festival (lexiconofsustainability.com/images), and supported by the Santa Barbara Permaculture Network (sbpermaculture.org).
