  1. I’m interestd in the comfrey and learning where and when your seed swap might be. We have some saved seeds but alot of commercial organic seeds from Seeds of Change, etc. We were going to hold our own seed swap, but if these seeds are okay to bring, we can just attend your swap!


    • We will be posting our exchanges soon. The organizing committee is in conversation with numerous venues around Philadelphia. If you are interested in hosting a swap send us an e-mail and we will try to attend and bring seeds/plants to swap and share. You are welcome to bring any seeds to exchange at our events. Thanks for your interest and we look forward to meeting you soon. Our e-mail is phillyseedexchange [@] gmail [.] com
