Seed & Plant Exchange: Warm-season Veggies, Flowers & Herbs
Saturday, May 30 – 10 am to noon
Grange Hall 609 S. 3rd Avenue, Hailey
Local gardeners are invited to come and share seeds and plants at Wood River Seed Library (WRSL) and the Grange’s Seed & Plant Exchange. The event is an opportunity to meet other local gardeners, get inspired to grow delicious and nutritious food for your family, flowers that attract pollinators, and indoor and outdoor plants that beautify our landscape.
Bring your own saved seeds, potted plants and starts, and dig-up perennials from your gardens to share with the community.
Cool season vegetable gardening starts in early spring. Now is the time to make indoor or greenhouse starts, prepare our growing beds, raised beds and pots, so they are ready to receive transplants or direct seeding and to divide perennials that have over-expanded their allocated space.
Anyone looking for locally grown seeds is welcome to stop by the Grange and pick-up the varieties they are hoping to plant this Spring. The WRSL seeds are distributed free of charge, but donations to The Hunger Coalition are encouraged.
The Wood River Seed Library (WRSL) will be sharing the seeds grown and harvested by local seed savers. Gardeners are encouraged to plant these seeds, learn the basics of seed saving, harvest the seeds from the plants they grow, and return their surplus of locally harvested seeds to the WRSL in the Fall.
Locally produced seeds are adapted to our local environment and weather. By preserving and sharing these seeds, our seed library maintains a vibrant and diverse supply of open-pollinated varieties for local gardeners. This becomes an asset for a resilient community.
WRSL currently also shares its collection of seeds through the Hailey Public Library in Hailey.
