Are visions of crisp green lettuce, rainbow stripes of tomatoes, the perfect tender bean, and exotic picotee flowers dancing in your head? Before you place your seed orders, come to the Seed Swap at the Greensboro Free Library on February 2, 6:30 p.m. Feel free to bring seeds you have saved from your own garden, or extras that you have to share. We’ll talk about seed saving, favorite varieties, and growing successes and failures. Bring your questions, experiences and gardening advice. Leftover seeds will be available on the following Thursday at the Hardwick Community Dinner located at the United Church in Hardwick 12-1 p.m.
This is a free event brought to you by the Swap Sisters. The Swap Sisters hold seasonal events to share information and resources about growing and preserving food within the community. Sharing seeds and learning more about saving your own seeds is the beginning and the end of the year long cycle that also includes a plant swap in June, a day of workshops related to food preservation in September, and a harvest swap in November. The Swap Sisters believe in the power of homegrown solutions when facing big corporate-created crises. We seek to foster local independence based on neighborly interdependence. Save a seed, plant a seed, share a seed. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 755-6336.
