Sow and Grow with Santa Barbara Community Seed Swap

Join the Santa Barbara Permaculture Network for a free event as it celebrates the fifth annual Santa Barbara Community Seed Swap from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 27 in the Faulkner Gallery of the Santa Barbara Central Library, 40 E. Anapamu S

More than 400 people attended last year, sharing seeds and knowledge with other backyard gardeners, plant lovers and farmers. Come be a part of this seed-saving movement, making sure that locally adapted varieties of seed and plants are passed on to future generations. Children are welcome.

Bring seeds, plants, cuttings and garden knowledge to swap. Don’t have these? Then come get seeds. Seeds to sow. Seeds to grow. Seeds to harvest. Seeds to save and share next year.

There will be activities for all ages: story hour, crafts, seed ball making, seed saving lessons, seed envelope making, worm composting, learning about bare root trees and more.

There will also be music that will have your toes tapping, special speakers throughout the day, and a gathering of garden friends old and new.

A display of the Lexicon of Sustainability will be on the patio area in front of library, sponsored by Santa Barbara City College Center for Sustainability and SOL Food Festival.

Special thanks to Island Seed & Feed, which has generously supported the annual Santa Barbara Community Seed Swap every year with donations.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
