All this warm weather we’ve been having lately is making our gardening thumbs twitch here at the The Wittenbach/Wege Agriscience and Environmental Education Center in Lowell. As we plan our 2012 garden, we’ve noticed we have lots of unused seed that we don’t need. Are you in the same boat? Do you have lots of unused seed from summers past that you no longer have a need for? Wouldn’t it be great to get rid of your seed stash and acquire new seeds?
We will be hosting a seed swap on Sunday, April 1, from 2-3 p.m. here at the WWC. Bring out any seeds you have to swap. Seeds can be up to five years old but please don’t bring anything you know isn’t viable. Make sure all packets are labeled with the type and variety name (original packets are appreciated but not necessary). Even if you don’t have seeds to swap, come on out. The WWC will have heirloom and traditional varieties available for a small donation. For more information, please call 616-987-2565 or email Meggan Johnson at email@example.com.
