(See also the Facebook event for the Spring Seed Swap ...)
To celebrate the arrival of spring in northeast Ohio, Room Service will present a Spring Seed Swap at Room Service Boutique in Ohio City, 2078 W 25th St, from 12pm to 5pm. In addition to being able to swap seeds and seedlings with other neighborhood gardeners, the first fifty visitors will receive a “seed bomb” – a small ball of seeds and soil bound with soft clay – containing native wildflower seeds courtesy of Ohio Prairie Nursery (www.ohioprairienursery.com). Kids (and adults) will have a chance to get their hands dirty and make their own seed bombs. Representatives of the Cleveland Seed Bank (www.clevelandseedbank.org) will be at R/S to distribute information and answer questions about the work that is being done in the area to preserve and propagate local, heirloom seeds. Restore Cold Pressed (www.restorecoldpressed.com) will be giving away samples of their raw, organic juice just weeks before opening their new downtown digs. Other refreshments will be served throughout the day.
