    Explore seed history. Help conserve agricultural resources. Save money. 

    Join our farm community for a seed swap

    Two items to bring:

    • Your favorite seeds to exchange, cleaned and identified with seed name and a few characteristics (i.e. growing needs, bloom, flavor, pest resistance). Heirloom seeds preferred but no seed will be turned away.
    • Your favorite gardening stories and memories. 

    We will have limited bags available to use for seed exchange, but please bring your own collection bags or jars if you have them. The farm will also provide native prairie seeds to make wildflower seed bombs. 

    No seeds to swap? There are always extra seeds. We are happy to share and this is a great way to get started in gardening.

    RSVP -- Space is limited.

    **Please park by the big red barn and walk over to the farmhouse.**
