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.

Live Demonstrations and Gardening technique talks

In addition to the free exchange of seeds, there will be a variety of informational gardening technique talks and live demonstrations starting at 11:30.

Seed and Plant vendors

As in previous years, Cedarcrest High School students will be selling garden art and potted flowering bulbs. Check our website for updates on other exhibitors and vendors.

Volunteers wanted!

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.

We will be calling for volunteers by mid-January on the website.
