January 25 - Seed Swap @ Landmark Park


January 25 Seed Swap @ Landmark Park

In celebration of National Seed Swap Day, Landmark Park and the Wiregrass Master Gardeners will hold the 3rd Annual Seed Swap from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.The seed swap will take place in the park’s Stokes Activity Barn. Demonstrations, booths and representatives from the Alabama Cooperative Extension System will be on hand as well. Visitors are encouraged to bring seeds of their favorite vegetables or flowers to exchange and share with others. Even visitors who don’t have seeds to share are encouraged to participate and are sure to leave with seeds to try. Landmark Park is especially interested in obtaining heirloom (open pollinated) seeds from area families that have been passed down for generations. A small “toll” or percentage of seeds brought to the seed swap will be placed in the park’s Seed Bank, a permanent repository for local seed that will be kept for future generation and to help preserve our agricultural heritage. The Seed Bank is a cooperative project of Landmark Park and the Wiregrass Master Gardeners. Admission to the seed swap is free with paid gate admission to the park. For more information, contact the park office at 334-794-3452.

Sounds good if you can.
How does one go about one? Trade one for the other or what?

Bali, honestly not sure how you would trade seed for seed.
I would assume you'd pretty much do it like a regular plantswap; In order to participate you would bring seeds to trade.
You would want to package your seeds either a dz or two dz seeds per pack. Wouldnt that amount be enough? Depending on the seeds you may go with fewer seeds per trade.

seed trade


the last one I heard of was in southern Missouri. everyone wanting in the seed swap had a table of seed and gave them away to anyone wanting them. packages would have a certain amount of seed. you would visit the tables you want. the idea is to spread the seed, to keep them from dying out. same way we do it here. have a great day.
