Mark your calendar for our annual Seed Swap Day at Elawa Farm! Join us in this community event where experienced and new gardeners can gather to bring excess seeds, plant cuttings, and gardening books to swap with one another, just in time for the growing season. This free event offers the opportunity for attendees to cultivate a network of people interested in gardening and share seeds that support a more diverse and resilient local food supply.
Kids can participate in a free seed starting activity and story time during the seed swap, hosted by our friends at Lake Bluff Public Library! Drop-in story time will take place in the Hay Barn at 10:00 a.m. No registration for story time required!
We will also offer a Seed Starting at Home workshop in our Potting Shed and Greenhouse during the seed swap. For more information, click here.
