The 3rd Annual Floyd County Seed Swap will be on March 5, 2016 at the Rome Floyd County Library.
Public Lecture on Seed Saving Basics will take place from 11:00-12:00pm and the Seed Swap will take place from 12:00-2:00pm
Who: Berry College’s Environmental Studies Program, Action Ministries Rome, Keep Rome Floyd Beautiful, the Rome Federated Garden Clubs, Inc., the Rome Floyd County Library, and any interested farmers and gardeners.
Why: Farmers and gardeners have a legacy of heirloom seeds and plants that are in danger of being lost, and sharing of seeds and plants will encourage production of diverse varieties for posterity, food security, beauty, and sustainable landscape management.
How it works: Anyone can bring seeds or plants to swap or share. If you do not have seeds or plants, you could bring envelopes, garden implements, or stories–anything to share or trade with other gardeners.
