Whether you’re an avid seed-saver or a gardener interested in learning the technique, the fourth annual Seedy Saturday Seed Swap is an informative way to spend your afternoon Saturday, Feb. 16, from 1-4 p.m.
Garden enthusiasts from across the Treasure Valley will stop by the Wright Congregational United Church of Christ at 4821 W. Franklin Road to learn about the practice of saving seeds. The Seed Swap will feature tables and samples of seeds, as well as two workshops designed to teach the basics. The first class, Seed Saving 101, will be from 1:30-2:30 p.m., and the Processing Seed class will take place from 2:45-3:45 p.m. Throughout the swap, there will be seed-saving experts on hand to help out and answer any questions.
Attendees should bring their own saved garden seed (optional), small seed packets, paper bags or envelopes, pens or pencils for labeling, and paper to scribble notes. You can fill out the Seed Identification Form on the Treasure Valley Food Coalition's website before attending, or the forms will be available at the registration table.
The Fourth Annual Seedy Saturday Seed Swap costs $2 per person.
