Seed Swap & Giveaway
Edible Evanston is proud to host our 5th-annual seed swaps and giveaway.
Dozens of vegetable and flower types and hundreds of varieties, including unique heirlooms and locally saved seeds are available for free to encourage people in Evanston to grow their own food and plant for pollinators. (A limit as to the number of seed packets per person will be posted at the event.)
In addition to generous seed companies and farms, you can donate seeds you grew and saved or seed packets from past years you don't plan to use. Bring seeds with you and we'll let you take more home.
Once again, we are partnering with
Natural Habitat Evanston and encouraging people to bring seeds gathered from their native plants favored by pollinators to share with others.
Dozens of unique plant varieties are available thanks to the generous donations from seed companies, including Bounty Beyond Belief, High Mowing Organic Seeds, Peaceful Valley/ Grow Organic, Renee's Garden Scheeper’s Kitchen Garden Seeds, Sow True Seed,Seed Savers Exchange.
