Heirloom Seed Swap, Sandy Oregon, January 27th

The Sandy Seed Library, partnering with AntFarm, will be hosting our first ever “Seedy Saturday” SEED SWAP.  The number of people interested in gardening and growing their own food just keeps  expanding. Gardeners are concerned about genetically modified food and are looking for local, organically produced seeds for their garden. Seedy Saturday will provide the opportunity for us to come together and exchange our non-GMO, non-hybrid heritage varieties of vegetable and flower seeds.  Music by Sharon Sandgren & Friends will add to the festive atmosphere.

What:  Heirloom Seed Swap (non-GMO, non-hybrid heritage varieties of vegetable and flower seeds)

Where: AntFarm Cafe, 39140 Proctor Blvd. Sandy OR.

When: Saturday January 27th (last Saturday in January).

Time:  11am-2pm

Seedy Saturday is an heirloom seed exchange held the last Saturday in January.
