Seasonal Activities & Unique Offerings

March 23—Heirloom Seed Swap 10am-noon


Join us for our 3rd Annual Heirloom Seed Swap.  The museum will have many varieties of seeds on hand from our gardens.  Herbs, vegetables, flowers, and medicinal plant seeds are all fair game.  Stop by and trade us for your own favorite varieties, or select as many seeds as you can use for a small donation.  Heirloom seeds are those that reproduce exactly the same plant year after year, often passed down from generation to generation. Hybrids, more common today, are those that are a genetic blend.  We welcome both types, but do ask that donated seeds are labelled as hybrid or heirloom.  Plants and cuttings are welcome, as well.

No registration is required.  This event is free and open to the public.
