 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

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.

Salon Series Premieres March 6

“A salon is a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation.”

A new SALON SERIES premieres Friday, March 6th, 7 to 9 p.m. at the Ojai Valley Green Coalition Resource Center – 206 N. Signal St., Suite S, in downtown Ojai.
'SEEDS' is the theme for the inaugural salon.

Attendees are invited to consider the seed as potential, from the practical to the esoteric, by bringing a short personal story, poem/quote/brief book reading, or image/photograph/art work to share and to inspire discussions about the significance of SEEDS in our life and on Earth.

The evening will be a casually structured conversation; hosted by Laurie Walters and Anca Colbert.

The Salon is FREE, but a donation or a beverage to share is appreciated.
The Salon will begin promptly at 7 p.m. and seating is limited.

Sharing the Salon Invitation
and this webpage link is very appreciated.
