Philadelphia Seed Exchange would like to thank Seed Savers Exchange (Decorah, IA) for a supply of heirloom seeds to distribute and supplies to begin our seed bank. Information about saving seeds will be available.

Seed packets will be open for taking as few or as many seeds as you need. Small envelopes will be available to fill and take home.

  4. I’m so excited for the Earth Cup Cafe Swap! I’m bringing carrots, lettuce, greens, radishes, squash, tomatoes, beans, every kind of sunflower, and a big variety of herbs. I’m really interested to see what else is out there!
