Save some dollars and enhance your garden by attending the Tacoma-Pierce County Community Garden Program’s annual Seed Swap at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 28, at the Tacoma Nature Center, 1919 S. Tyler St., Tacoma.
“Often a packet of seeds contains many more seeds than a gardener needs in a year, and buying one seed packet of every type of vegetable we want to grow can break the bank,” said Kristen McIvor, community garden coordinator. “The solution? A seed swap.”
Gardeners are invited to bring a potluck dish and packets of seeds to share. This event is free and open to all Tacoma and Pierce County residents.
For more information, contact Kristen McIvor at (253) 363-1846 or email@example.com.
