Come join us for a Potluck and Seed Swap! Free event, where you can bring either saved seed or leftover packets that are still viable and lay them all out on tables and everyone is welcome to take what they want, rather than individuals directly trading this seed for that seed. If anyone has particularly coveted seed that is in short supply you are welcome to set own parameters on how much is taken and so forth. Please call to register 828-649-2411 or contact Elizabeth Ayers at firstname.lastname@example.org
