Unlike a traditional seed swap, there's obviously little or no real swapping going on here - of course, if you have any special heirloom seeds you care to share with us - share away! But this is really just a fun, low-key, no obligation way to kick-off the gardening season a bit early and get everyone thinking good garden thoughts!
A special thanks to Amanda Rasmason, Asst. Mgr., who has worked to support our new farm project this season. She recently stored away all of these seeds at the end of the selling season and passed them along for our upcoming growing season - can't thank you enough Amanda and Blain's!
We wanted to provide the links to some of our favorite gardening sites, if you should need any planting guides for any of the seeds you intend to plant this year.
One of our favorite donors to the Sunny Patch Project is Johnny's Seeds, click the image below to connect with their site:
You should also know about Rodales Organics:
We want to acknowledge the tremendous support we've received from our local Whole Foods Market in Willowbrook.
Not only did they make a random donation of over a thousand assorted seed packets early in our first season, but they chose us as their Grand Opening Partner for the One Dime at a Time Grant for the Fourth Quarter of 2015. They continued to support our project with a second large seed donation for our second season as well.
Their support has allowed us to grow not only countless new plants for our families but our project as a whole!
The seeds that Whole Foods provided were Botanical Interest and are superior quality seeds - many of which we've been able to share with visitors to the Patch.
