Co-sponsored by libraries, farmers markets, a state park, and more, the University of Central Arkansas’s Conserving Arkansas’s Agricultural Heritage (CAAH!) project will host Seed Swaps around the state throughout Spring 2013. Bring some open-pollinated (heirloom) seeds, bulbs, plants, and stories to swap with other seed savers. If you have no seeds to swap but want to get started, come along to mingle with gardeners and farmers who can help.
Conserve the heritage of Arkansas as we share good stories, beautify our yards, feed our friends and family, and of course, trade seeds.
HOW IT WORKS: Anyone can bring seeds to swap or share. If you do not have seeds, you could bring envelopes or garden implements, anything to share or trade with other gardeners.
The first seed swaps take place tomorrow, Saturday, February 9 in Yellville and Mountain View. The Yellville Seed Swap will take place 1-3 p.m. at Fred Berry Conservation Education Center (851 Conservation Lane) in Yellville. Contact Pamela Simmons for more information.
The Mountain View Seed Swap will take place between 1-4 p.m. at the Ozark Folk Center Bois D’arc Conference Center (1032 Park Avenue) in Mountain View. Contact Tina Wilcox for more information.
