Seed Savers Exchange

March 12 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Sunday, March 12, 2-4 p.m. Oliver Kelley Farm, 15788 Kelley Farm Road, Elk River. The Oliver Kelley Farm has promoted saving rare and heirloom seeds since 1981. In 2017, the Kelley farm will celebrate the 35th Seed Savers Exchange, and the first one in the new visitor center. In this program, visitors can learn how to save, store and plant seeds, and then save them again, just as farmers and gardeners have done for thousands of years. A gardening expert will share insights into heirloom plants and gardening for the first part of the event, then stay for the free seed exchange. Participants don’t need to bring seeds in order to take seeds home. Seed art and sorting activities will be provided for children. Event is free. 763-441-6896 or [email protected].
