Native Plant Seed Exchange
November 11, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm CST| Free
America’s largest exchange of native plant seeds has been scheduled. Save the date and harvest your seeds – or come with cash to start your native landscape at home.
Join the Greater DuPage Wild Ones at their annual seed exchange to get locally harvested native plant seeds and share and learn from fellow community members interested in native landscapes. There will be a silent auction and a potluck, so consider bringing a snack or drink to share.
How the Exchange Works
Collect your own seed and bring it to the Seed Exchange. You are entitled to take other seeds home with you, up to an amount equal to what you bring. If you do not have seed to trade, packets of seed can be purchased for a nominal charge.

9am – 9:30am: Set out seeds. No browsing for seed until 9:30
