Get ready for spring gardening at The Seattle Public Library! Gardeners of all abilities can share seeds and find new plant varieties at the fourth annual Great Seattle Seed Swap. This event will take place from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 25 at the West Seattle Branch, 2306 42nd Ave. S.W., 206-684-7444.


Library events are free and everyone is welcome-young and old, new or experienced gardeners. Registration is not required. Some parking spaces are available behind the branch. Street parking is free and available near the branch.


Seed packs are available for beginning gardeners, and the Library will have a variety of gardening books available for checkout.


Gardeners who are sharing seeds should arrive by 2 p.m. to set them out, and can expect to exchange about as many seed packs as they bring. Please label your seeds with as much information as possible, such as variety, growth habit and days to maturity. For more details on seed sharing, visit the Seattle Farm School's information page.


This event is presented in partnership with the Seattle Farm School.
