Seed Swap a success!

The Walla Walla Gleaners hosted a Seed Swap event at the Walla Walla Public Library on Saturday, April 25.   seedswap2s

With generous donations of seeds from Renee’s Garden and Sustainable Mountain Agriculture Center, all visitors were invited to take home as many seeds as they could use. In addition, some people brought seeds from home to contribute. Left over seeds will be distributed to DSHS, BMAC, and local food pantries. Close to 50 people attended, many of whom expressed interest in joining Walla Walla Gleaners.

The event also drew the attention of the Union-Bulletin, which published an article on April 21.

Thanks to all of our members who volunteered their time, the Walla Walla Public Library for providing the venue, and to the companies who donated seeds. We plan to turn this into an annual event!
