Dear Seed Lovers,
Here comes the Annual Floyd County Seed Swap Potluck!
What: Free seeds for all! Bring any extras you may have, take any that you’ll use. Any seeds left at the end of the day go to Plenty! Farm and Food Bank. Also check out seeds generously donated by Peaceful Valley Farm and Garden Supply, thanks to Katie! Plants to give away to your fellow local gardeners are always welcome. The optional potluck is always a delicious treat!
Who: Everyone! This event is free, open to the public, and wheelchair accessible.
When: Saturday, February 1, 2019 from 12pm to 3pm. Presentation by Ital Acres Herbals at 1:30.
Where: Plenty! 192 Elephant Curve Rd Floyd VA 24091
Donations to Plenty! are greatly appreciated but not required.
Instructions for sharing successful seeds:
-Please check the seed viability chart against the age of your seeds here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/floydcountyseedexchange/permalink/790297391318808/.
-Be sure to bring seeds that were properly isolated from cross-pollination with related plants. If you bought your seeds from any seed company, they will have taken care of this but you can learn to do it in your own garden with the fantastic book Seed to Seed by Suzanne Ashworth, which you can read for free (!!) at https://books.google.com/books/about/Seed_to_Seed.html?id=Wb-KAgAAQBAJ&printsec=frontcover&source=kp_read_button#v=onepage&q&f=false.
-Please bring seeds that were stored for viability (air tight containers in the fridge are a simple way to store most seeds).
-It is also helpful to provide information such as seed source (yourself or your buddy Steve or a seed company), year saved, variety name, and any other characteristics, recipes, or stories you’d like to share.
-There will be some envelopes provided, but bringing your own is strongly encouraged!
Looking forward to seeing you there!!
