Peter White Public Library in Marquette

Marquette, MI – The Queen City Seed Library Seed Swap will take place Saturday, March 23rd from 1:00 to 3:30 pm at the Peter White Public Library. To participate in the seed swap, please bring open-pollinated, non-GMO seeds that are labeled with the plant type, variety, date of harvest, and location of harvest. There will be envelopes and bags on hand at the event, but experienced seed savers are encouraged to bring their own envelopes.

The Queen City Seed Library invites everyone who is interested in gardening and growing their own food to attend. All activities are free. The event offers gardeners and seed savers a chance to exchange seeds and share knowledge. The swap is an opportunity for new seed savers to get locally harvested seeds for starting their own gardens. “If you’re new to this, you don’t even need to bring seeds; just come,” said Michael Riesterer of Transition Marquette, adding that “For experienced seed savers, a seed swap helps growers to localize their seed sources while also introducing the practice of seed saving to the public — both of which helps build local food security.”

Participants who bring seeds for the seed swap should arrive at 1:00 pm. All others should arrive at 1:30 pm. Attendees are not required to bring seeds. For more information, contact Michael Riesterer at queencityseedlibrary@gmail.com or call 225-0608.
