As fall approaches, whispers of pumpkin-spice, football and all things autumn enter our consciousness. Perhaps the most iconic aspect of this season is the fall harvest– a time to celebrate the life our land provides.

The fall planting season is almost here and on Aug. 30, gardeners of all skill levels will gather at the Chandler Sunset Library to share seeds and seed starts, meet local gardeners, and exchange gardening tips, according to a news release.

Now in its fourth year at Sunset, the free Seed Swap held from 6- 7:30 p.m. is great for anyone with an interest in gardening, learning from other gardeners’ experiences and discovering new seeds to try growing at home.

Sunset Library, 4930 W. Ray Road, has hosted Seed Swaps about twice a year; once in late winter to early spring for the spring harvest, and once in late summer to early fall for the fall harvest.

Participating gardeners often share excess seeds they don’t plan to use and seeds from their most successful yields. By using seeds from previous bountiful yields, future harvests can turn out to be overwhelmingly successful.

Many of the seeds that are “swapped” are also specific to plants that are appropriate to grow in this region and climate.

Some seeds that may be available for the Fall Seed Swap are anything lettuce-related (lettuce, cabbage, kale, mustard greens, chard, spinach), onions, garlic, green onion, leeks, carrots, peas, and all varieties of herbs. There are also often sunflowers and other wildflowers, and loofah seeds – which turn into the big loofahs you use in the shower.

Tables will be available for local gardeners to display information and resource materials. The event is open to the public and you don’t have to bring your own seeds to participate.
