The event is FREE, but you must register in advance to participate. We’ll be in the basement of The Word at Shaw again, 4265 Shaw Boulevard St. Louis, MO 63110. Saturday, March 2, from noon to 3.
Bring seeds to share, any amount is fine by us. Please, no expired seeds! Seeds may be store-bought or harvested from your garden. Gold stars for heirloom or organic. Clearly label all seeds and indicate whether they are full sun, part sun, or shade. You do not need to individually package seeds, but we certainly don’t mind if you do. Slow Foods is sponsoring again and has generously provided a grant to Drop. Swap. Grow. so we can get some native and heirloom seeds for the seed bank to share. It’s always a good idea to bring envelopes or baggies to store the seeds you pick out. We will have some envelopes to share, but they go fast.
The tool swap is easy-peasy, too. If you have any new or gently used extra tools lying about, bring them to swap with others. We’ll have a table set up for drop off when you arrive.
As everyone checks in we’ll have some snacks to share and time to socialize. Once we are all settled, we’ll have a couple short talks from some awesome local yokels who are going to share their wisdom. We’ll have a speaker from Slow Foods as well as Jenny Murphy from Perennial who will teach us how to creatively reuse common household items in the garden. We’ve got a couple other ideas cookin’, too. We’ll keep you posted as plans are finalized.
If you would like to volunteer at the event, please email Holly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Can’t wait to see you!
