Spring Seed Swap on March 3rd

This March 3rd from 2-4PM at Bread and Roses Food Cooperative/Wild Greens Community Cafe (915 Railroad Ave), Transition Tallahassee will be co-sponsoring Tallahassee’s second seasonal seed swap with Tallahassee Sustainability Group and Bread and Roses Food Co-op.

Gardeners of all experience levels are encouraged to save and bring seeds to share, but this is not required. If you’re interested in gardening but haven’t gotten started yet, feel free to come and pick up seeds to get going.  There will be plenty of seeds to go around!  It will also be helpful to bring envelopes and markers for storing and labeling seeds you take home.

The event will begin with a presentation on the Iowa Seed Savers’ Exchange by Simon Bevis. There will be a $2 cover that will go toward event expenses, and remaining funds raised will go to Bread & Roses Food Cooperative. A light meal will be provided.

The goal of our seasonal seed swaps is to encourage a community of seed savers who help to create genetic varieties that are adapted to our local bioregion and have desirable traits like good flavor, as opposed to being shippable and having long shelf lives, like many varieties bred for industrial agriculture.
