4th Annual HRTI Seed Swap: Get Your Garden On!

Post date: Dec 21, 2012 4:52:4 PM

      Saturday January 19, 2013 from 11 AM until 1:30 PM 

If your mailbox is like mine, it has been equally crammed with holiday greeting cards and shiny seed catalogs, filled with dreams of summer gardens. That can mean only one thing: It’s time for the Annual HRTI Seed Swap! Sponsored by Hay River Transition Initiative, our mission is to create a sustainable community of good neighbors, shared knowledge and local resources. Bring your spare seeds and related plant items to share with your fellow gardeners, and swap for new varieties to try in the coming growing season. Seed ordering will also be coordinated this year, with orders through Fedco (www.fedcoseeds.com) and Seed Savers Exchange (www.seedsavers.org). For all those orchardists out there, fruit tree and shrub orders will also be available, through St. Lawrence Nurseries (www.sln.potsdam.ny.us). Are you in need of a little extra garden space for next summer? Sign up for a spot in the Community Garden, located at the corner of River Avenue and Wayne St. More information about garden plot reservations will be available, please stop by the display and say hello. Mark your calendars for Saturday January 19, 2013 from 11 AM until 1:30 PM, at the Elementary Multipurpose room, Prairie Farm School. Please come to the Elementary entrance (look for signs). Free coffee and snacks will be provided. Got questions? Contact Cris Cantin at 715-455-2088 for more information. See you at the Swap!
