We are doing things a bit differently this year. 
(1) The event will be held at our Edgewood Community Learning Garden in Atlanta using both our indoor and outdoor spaces.
(2) Everyone will have to wear a mask that covers both your nose and mouth while on Wylde Center premises.
(3) We are asking that participants sign up for a session for when he/she/they will bring seeds to share and pick out seeds to take home. In the past, we have had 200 people at a time picking out seeds. This year we are limiting it to 30 people per session due to COVID and its variants. We hope that in 2023, we can return to letting everyone in at one time. Please pick your session and know that within your time slot, there will be plenty of treasures to choose from.


Register in advance:

All participants should register in advance to reserve your 20 minute (ish) time slot. Walk ins will be allowed for any open time slots. Please reserve your spot.

COVID Guidelines
Everyone will be asked to wear a mask while in the Edgewood Community Learning Garden and its building.

Please note that Wylde Center is monitoring the COVID situation. Wylde Center reserves the right to cancel the event is conditions are unsafe or if the City of Atlanta limits event gatherings.

What to bring:

We are asking that registrants bring at least 5 seed packets to contribute to the event. Don't have 5 different kinds of seeds? Not a problem at all, you can break up one big packet of seeds into 5 individual packets to contribute. Have fun swapping!

How the swap works:

1. Upon arriving, you will check in at one of the entrance tables (either from Coan parking lot or on the driveway from Mayson Avenue.
2. You will take the seeds you are sharing and place them on the signed tables. i.e. tomato seeds go on the tomato table, beans on the bean table. We will have a person helping you locate the appropriate tables.
3. Once you have distributed your seeds, feel free to browse the tables for seeds you want to take home, visit our community partner tables and Wylde Center merch table, and chat with the fruit tree scion club.

We encourage registrants to walk, bike or Uber to the event as parking is limited. We ask that you park in the lot behind the former Coan Middle School. You can access this parking via an entrance on Hosea L. Williams Dr. NE. We will have signs on the street to help you find the lot. Once in the lot you can proceed to the backside of the building where you can park, there is a gate that will give you access to enter right into our Edgewood Garden. If the lot is full, please park on Mayson Ave NE or Hardee St. NE, but please don't block driveways.
