2nd Annual Community Seed Swap

The SEEDS club would like to invite you to participate in our 2nd Annual Community Seed Swap on Saturday November 14 from 1:00–4:00 p.m. in Zink Gym A!

A Seed Swap is an opportunity to donate and/or receive free seeds for your garden next year (No GMO seeds please.) This event is part of a larger project that will help to begin the Northern Appalachian Seed Bank. The event is free to attend, no seeds are required to participate and there will be kids activities!

At 2 pm our guest speaker Edward Donley of the IUP Mathematics Department will present “Growing Your Own Wildflowers”.

Growing Your Own Wildflowers Summary:
 Ed Donley will discuss the benefits of gardening with native plants and the importance of maintaining heirloom varieties of food crops and ornamental flowers.  Seeds swaps are a great way to acquire new wildflower seeds and heirloom garden seeds. He will describe the techniques required to grow your own native plants from seeds, based on his experience in transforming his Indiana County property to a native plant habitat.
