Event description

Description

Stewards of Future Harvests is a free community-based event focused on bringing together community, home and school gardeners from across our county and region to network and share gardening experiences and ideas. The world-wide practice of seed saving ensures long-term diversity and sustainability of edible and ornamental plants for the next generations. As seed savers, we are stewards of future harvests and we are responsible for what happens next in the practice of gardening from seed, seed collection and seed preservation.

We will have a diverse selection of free seeds and you may bring seeds to share. Any seeds you bring to share should be labeled with the plant name and growing instructions.

We willl offer an open forum information exchange, demonstrations on seed starting, companion planting and space-saving container and vertical gardening, techniques. Light refreshments provided.

Want to Highlight your Home or Community Garden? We are asking home and community gardeners to participate in our garden highlight photo show "The Story of My Garden - My Garden in Pictures" Entry Rules - Send a Powerpoint Presentation with your garden clearly identified or you may bring a collage no larger than a project poster board size.

Need Service Hours? Student volunteers can receive community service hours. If you are a student 16 years or older and would like to volunteer to help with the seed swap, please let us know. Bring your volunteer documentation form with you when you report.
