Event Details

One of the biggest events of the year in Central Virginia is the Heritage Harvest Festival  at Monticello.  Southern Exposure hosts this event in partnership with the Thomas Jefferson Foundation annually in September.

Enjoy the Festival on Friday and Saturday September 6-7, then join us for some regional networking among seed savers Sunday morning, September 8, in Louisa and finish the afternoon with tours of five different Louisa County Farms that are involved in seed saving. Each farm will offer a tour of the operation, tell you the part that seed saving plays on their farm, and give a brief seed saving demonstration. Participating farms include, in suggested order of touring:

  • Twin Oaks Community Seeds (Demo: 1:00)
