The annual Seed Exchange is an opportunity for Cal Hort members to share their plants. Participation in the Seed Exchange is a benefit of membership; to receive seeds, you must be a current member of Cal Hort.
We announce a request for seeds in September and accept donations through the end of November. We include details about the types of seeds we are looking for and where to send them. In general contributions can be seeds of all kinds, from common-place to rare, in great or small amounts, so long as they are likely to retain viability between harvest and distribution and can be sent without damage through mail.
The numbered list of seeds donated is published with the January Bulletin—both in printed form and posted on line—along with the request form. Completed request forms must be received by the end of February and the seeds will be distributed by mail. There is a small fee.
Wonder what types of seeds have been in the exchange in the past?
