Local SEED ME, SEYMOUR

Slow Food Piedmont
and
Old Salem Museum & Gardens
invite you to
The Annual Seed Swap
Saturday, January 14, 2012
10 AM
Single Brothers’ Workshop, 10 W. Academy Street

First time growers, experienced gardeners and all who are interested are invited to come and swap seeds, handy tips, and bits of garden wisdom. 

There will be a pot-luck lunch; participants are asked to bring something to share, perhaps from your seed to table. Beverages will be provided.

Traditionally, seed saving was a part of every growing season. However, in recent decades, food varieties extinction in America has accelerated so that an estimated 90% of our historic vegetable and fruit varieties are now gone. There has never been a more important time to celebrate, save and exchange seed!

This event is FREE and open to the public. Please pre-register for this event by calling 336-721-7384 or emailing info@oldsalem.org. In the event of snow, the Seed Swap will be rescheduled for Saturday, January 28.
