Welcome

The Inland Northwest Permaculture Guild is a network of permaculture practitioners who inhabit a region of the northwestern U.S. between the Cascade Mountain Range and the Rocky Mountain Range. We host annual gatherings and operate this interactive website to facilitate communication among Guild members and between the Guild and the greater community to inform ourselves and others about the promise of permaculture.

What's a Tree and Plant Swap? Kinda like a seed swap but a little later in the season-- fewer seeds and more live plant material.

Bring whatever plant material you want to buy / sell / trade, or just bring yourself. All are welcome to participate. It's FREE!

No matter if you're a nursery or a hobbyist, farmer or gardener, we welcome you to come.

10' x 10' and 10' x 20' spaces will be available (if you need more, like a truck space, let us know and we'll try and make it work).

People can give away, trade or sell plants, starts, pots, root divisions, seeds, tree seedlings, cuttings, scionwood, succulents, etc.

~We are asking folks bring only vigorous, healthy, no-chemical planting stock. This means no GMO. Words like 'heirloom,' 'organic,' 'open-pollinated,' 'unsprayed,' 'locally-adapted,' etc. come to mind when describing what we are hoping to see at the swap.

This year, it should be hopping. We are doing it in conjunction with the Spokane Sustainable Local Food Colloquium which is an event with workshops and lectures that should draw quite a few folks, plus we'll be advertising it to the general public so they will come even if they aren't part of the colloquium.

We're not charging for space at this swap, but we will be taking donations, so if vendors do well, they'll have the option of slipping INPG a few dollars after all is said and done.

Contact Chrys Ostrander (farmrchrys@gmail.com) with any questions or just show up.
