Queen City Seed Swap

March 13, 2019

Marquette, MI – A Celebration of Seeds event, sponsored by the Queen City Seed Library, will be held in the lower level of the Peter White Library on Friday, March 22 and Saturday, March 23, to highlight the importance of seeds in our local food system.

The 2-day event begins with a kids activity and seed-themed scavenger hunt beginning at 4:30 p.m. on Friday. Saturday activities include a gardening workshop at 10:30 a.m., followed by the 5th annual Community Seed Swap. Participants who bring seeds should arrive at 1 p.m., prepared with open-pollinated, non-GMO seeds that are labeled with the plant type, variety, and date and location of harvest. There will be envelopes and bags on-hand at the event, but participants are encouraged to bring their own envelopes. Attendees should arrive at 1:30 p.m. and need not bring seeds to participate.
