The last Saturday in January is designated as National Seed Swap Day. While we don’t condone pursuing such things on Shabbat, it is a great concept to embrace the other days of the week! For most of human history, seeds have been exchanged, shared and highly valued. In modern culture, it is a wonderful form of recycling. So, talk with your neighbors or local gardeners to see if there’s an avenue for seed sharing in your area. Even your local library may have a “seed exchange” program; it’s a service some of them offer. If there isn’t something established in your community, consider starting a swap yourself! Then get planting!
