Don’t Miss the 2013 Kaw Valley Project Seed Fair

2013 SEED FAIR (Kaw Valley Seeds Project Fourth Annual Fair)
Sat., Feb. 9, 2013, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Douglas County Fairgrounds, 2110 Harper St., Lawrence, KS, Building 21
FREE
The Seed Fair features a seed exchange, educational exhibits and a
raffle for various gardening-related prizes. The annual fair, which
has drawn 1,200 visitors the past two years, is expected to include
more than 30 exhibitors offering educational information, gardening
products and local farm products. The seed exchange will take place at
a central set of tables where gardeners may drop off garden seeds they
will not use, including seeds produced in their home gardens as well
as purchased seeds. Heirloom, open-pollinated seeds are especially
welcomed. This year, the exchange also will include books, videos,
catalogs, and other gardening and seed-saving resources. Anyone may
contribute seeds and other resources to the exchange, but no one is
obligated to make a contribution in order to obtain seeds or other
materials from the exchange table.

Food from The Merc, the locally owned natural foods grocer in
Lawrence, will be available for purchase throughout the day, and
tables will be set up near the kitchen.

The Kaw Valley Seeds Project is a nonprofit whose mission is to create
a Local Living Seed Reserve by fostering a network of people committed
to growing and eating, sharing and bartering seed varieties that are
native to or thrive in the Kansas River Valley. In addition, the
project’s goal is to educate the general public on the pleasures of
growing their own food by teaching them how to save, store and plant
seeds from their own gardens, and where to obtain organic and local
seed lines.
