EUREKA, Calif. (KIEM)- The North Coast Community Garden Collaborative hosted an open-air plant and seed exchange earlier today in Eureka.
The event was held in the courtyard next to the big blue Victorian building on the corner of G and 9th streets.
There were several tables spread out providing community members with seasonal veggie starts, herbs, perennials and tons of seeds at no cost.
The NCCGC said that it noticed that the usually seed exchange event wasn’t happening because of the COVID-19 pandemic and felt that it was something important to have for the community.
“I think it’s just important to have a safe venue for people to come out and have an increased access to seeds and knowledge,” said Matt Drummond who works with the North Coast Community Garden Collaborative. “Just getting that out to the community in this way, in a safe space. It creates community.”
