 Gardeners and farmers both current and aspiring are invited to join in for the 4th Annual Ojai Valley Seed & Plant Swap. All are welcome to bring stories and a passion for growing food, and if you have them, bring seeds, cuttings, or starts to share. The Swap is hosted by the Ojai Valley Green Coalition with Food for Thought Ojai and the Center for Regenerative Agriculture.

We also invite nonprofits and growers to sell local seeds, starts and garden amendments. A donation of 10% of gross sales to the Ojai Valley Green Coalition is requested. For further information or to coordinate sharing or selling seeds and plants contact the Green Coalition at (805) 669-8445 or coordinator@ojaivalleygreencoalition.com.

A $5 donation is suggested, if not bringing items to share or sell.
If swapping, no need to register. When you arrive you can find free table space and a chair, if you want to stay with your seeds; or there will be an unstaffed community table for misc. seeds.
