The National Seed Swap Day is designated as the last Saturday in January. The mission is to conserve and promote crop diversity in local communities through a planned event at which neighbors gather to exchange seeds and chat about plans for the upcoming season.

Let’s Swap!

Celebrate National Seed Swap Day with the Master Gardener Volunteers from CCE Schoharie and Otsego Counties on January 27, 2024. 

This is the perfect time of year to start thinking about spring and honoring this great tradition of swapping seeds with neighbors.

Master Gardener Volunteers will be in two locations with FREE seeds generously donated by several local businesses. 

Participation is FREE, and you do not have to donate seeds to benefit but are encouraged (not required) to bring seeds to swap.

No registration is necessary, just show up at either of these two locations.

Otsego  County

9:00 a.m. to Noon  

Oneonta Farmers' Market (Foothills Performing Arts and Civic Center)  

Schoharie County

10 to 11 a.m.

Middleburgh Library (323 Main St, Middleburgh)

In addition to the seed swap, Master Gardener Volunteers will be on hand with gardening demonstrations and will be available to answer gardening questions.
