Seed Exchange

The 2017-2018 Seed Exchange Is Now Open

The 2017-2018 Seed Exchange is open and the first step is the submission of online seed Donor Forms. If you donated seeds in the past, you will receive an email list of those seeds. Please check off the ones you will be donating again this year and email (or mail) the list back to us. For any new varieties being offered by past donors or any donations from those who have not donated seeds in the past, click here to enter the seed information on the online Seed Donor Form. 

Although we prefer that you use the online system, you may print and make copies of the Seed Donation Form and mail it to us.

We must receive the Donor Form as early as possible to be able to publish the Seed Catalog and deliver it to you before the holidays. If you have any problems, questions or concerns please contact Carole Maher at or 215-884-1662. Please don't worry about the possibility of crop failure. If that occurs, or if you discover some unexpected seeds, just let Carole know.

Seed Exchange Catalog

Requests for a printed catalog must be received by October 31 as well. The easiest way to request a catalog is to be sure your profile is up to date. Just go to and click on Member Center, then click My Profile. Scroll down to the bottom where you will find "Request Printed Catalog" and enter your preference. Or you can contact Carole Maher at or 215-884-1662, and Carole will make the change for you.
