Our annual potluck and seed exchange will be on Wednesday, November 1 with the potluck dinner beginning at 6:00 p.m. and the meeting at 7:00 p.m. in The Heights Community Center of Richmond Heights.

Having seeds to trade is encouraged, but not required. However, there’s still time to collect seeds for the exchange if you don’t have any prepared yet. Keep your seeds dry and put them in a labelled paper bag or envelope. Some people use plastic, as long as the seeds are completely clean and dry.

If you are new to native plants and will be receiving seeds, here’s a previous blog post that might help, Now that I have collected my native seeds, what’s next?

Also at this gathering is our potluck. It’s helpful to have a card with the name of the dish and who made it. Recipes as handouts are welcome.

Our gatherings are open to members and the public. Here’s the event info on our calendar page. We hope to see you there!

In addition, our next gathering is on Saturday, October 7 at 10:00 a.m. at the Museum of Transportation.

  1. Is the potluck at 6pm or 7pm? Also what type of dishes are you looking for? Thx! Ginny

    • Theoretically, the potluck starts at 6:00 p.m. and the meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. You can bring any type of dish from appetizer to dessert.
