Due to the popularity of last month’s community seed and plant swap, there will be another chance to trade your indoor and outdoor seeds, starters and plants with the neighbours. The Seed & Plant Swap will take place at Lovett Deconstruction’s Salvaged Building Material Yard on Saturday May 16th 2009 from 9am-5pm.

The Seed & Plant Swap offers people FREE and easy access to fruit, vegetables, herbs, shrubs, trees, annuals, perennials and houseplants whilst helping support local food growing culture and beautifying our neighborhood homes and yards. As Spring sets in, so too begins Spring Cleaning inside and outside. One person’s surplus is another person’s windfall. On Saturday May 16th 2009 the Lovett Deconstruction lot will be buzzing with the sound of people swapping Himalayan Impatiens for Walla Walla Sweets and more besides.

Last month’s Swap was lively and full of surprises as neighbors shared growing tips as well as plants, and the May 16th Swap promises the same. A longer day will mean more items to exchange. You can trade seed packets with plants (one-for-one) or make a donation to the North Portland Tool Library if you have no seeds or plants to swap, talk to neighbors, AND purchase materials to build a raised planter, garden bench or shed while you’re here.

Sponsored by Lovett Deconstruction, the Seed & Plant Swap is a call to gardeners, farmers, herb and flower enthusiasts, seed savers and the whole community to take action to grow your own food, beautify your surroundings and avoid wasting what you can’t use.

Cost: FREE – Bring One, Take One. Contributions to the North Portland Tool Library will be gratefully accepted if you want something, but don’t have anything to swap.
