My First Seed Exchange
I recently crawled out of winter hibernation so that I could participate in the seed exchange at the Ecology Center. The potluck hoedown seed trading event reminded me of the best parts of my hippy childhood. Between us, we had an amazing diversity and abundance of seeds. Year round, at the Ecology Center's Bay Area Seed Exchange Library (BASIL) "local gardeners and farmers can 'check out' seeds with the agreement that they attempt to grow them out and 'return' some seeds of the next generation at the end of the season."
