Swap Seeds This Season

Save money and connect with local gardeners by exchanging garden seeds through organized seed swaps.

At local seed exchanges, you may get lucky and find rare seeds that are not available through national seed companies. And they're likely to be better adapted to your gardening region. 
With your annual membership to Seed Savers Exchange, you’ll get the Seed Savers Yearbook, an invaluable resource that contains more than 11,000 heirloom garden seed offerings. 
Plant Swap
Gardeners on the Big Island of Hawai'i share free seedlings of the state tree (kukui nut, or candlenut) at an annual community seed and plant exchange.
