Share, Collect, Learn and Grow
The 8th Annual Snoqualmie Valley Seed Exchange is a local gardening event for everyone to share free seeds, collect planting tips, and learn growing techniques to grow a vegetable garden for the Pacific Northwest climate.
The seed exchange is now a project of Sno-Valley Tilth, in partnership with Cedarcrest High School Future Farmers of America club, and Strategies for Provident Living.
This is a FREE community event for all ages.

Volunteers and donors of home grown & saved seed get the benefit of exchanging seeds an hour before the exchange opens to the public. Check our website for current information: snoqualmievalleyseedexchange.org.
