Every year, gardeners, farmers, and everyday citizens gather to share knowledge and seeds. Workshops will be given on topics of seed saving, gardening, and policy issues relating to small-scale agriculture, then a food film will be shown. There will be seed vendors and organizations in attendance and a table will be set up for those who would like to exchange seeds that they’ve saved themselves. Entrance is by donation.
