You do not need to bring seeds to share; we have plenty seeds to give away, but if you wish to bring seeds to share, please observe the following guidelines:

  • Seeds may be in the original packaging, opened or not. If opened, please tape shut to avoid spillage.
  • If not in the original packaging, please label to the best of your ability, if known:
    • Species (required), such as beets, peppers, zucchini, etc.
    • Variety, such as Detroit Red Beets, Poblano Peppers, etc.
    • Year seeds were packaged, brand, organic, heirloom.
  • Please do not bring seeds for plants that are poisonous.
  • Fruit, vegetable, herb, and flower seeds are all welcome!

Exchanging seeds with other gardeners can be a great way to learn about a new variety, try growing something you haven’t grown before, and meet other people who are interested in gardening in the Brighton area.

You do not have to attend the class being held on March 11th in order to participate in the seed exchange that day.

If you have any questions, please contact Linda Young, Executive Director, at lyoung_111@msn.com or 720-301-0949.
