4th Annual Forest Park Seed Swap! RSVP Now!

Are you ready to forget about snow and ice and cold winter temps? Want to get together with a bunch of like-minded gardeners, trade seeds and stories, and make plans for your garden this year?  Well then you need to come to the 4th Annual Forest Park Community Garden Seed Swap!

What is a seed swap? you ask.... A seed swap gives you the opportunity to try new seeds by exchanging seeds you have with gardeners who have seeds you are looking for. Don't have anything to swap? That's ok, you can "buy into" the swap for just 50 cents a packet. Do you save your own garden seeds year to year?  You can swap those too! Beyond seeds, you can also bring bulbs, bare root stock, or house plants you no longer want. 

There will be a children's craft activity and a gardening lecture for our very own Mr. Brown Thumb!  

When:  March 23rd 2-4pm
Where: St. John's Church, 305 Circle Ave. in Forest Park

Admission is FREE as long as you RSVP in advance using the link below. Gardeners from Chicago, Oak Park, Cicero, Berwyn, River Forest and surrounding communities are welcomed to attend this seed swap.

We are also looking for volunteers to help us set up the room and clean up afterwards.
