Annual Seed Swap February 9
On February 9, 2013, the 5th Annual Ozark Seed Swap will take place in the Bois D’Arc Conference Center at the Ozark Folk Center State Park. This event is collaboration between the park and the University of Central Arkansas at Conway.
Got Whippoorwills, Razorbacks, Red Rippers, Pencil Cob, Hickory King, Greaseback or Turkey Craws to trade? Are you saving dill, cilantro and parsley seed? We invite you to bring some seeds and stories to swap with other Ozark seed savers and yarn spinners. If you have no seeds to swap but want to get started, come along to mingle with gardeners and farmers who can help. Come with the intent to grow the seed you obtain and return in 2014 to swap what you save for even more varieties. If you do not have seeds, you could bring envelopes or garden implements, baked goods or tea, just anything to share or trade with other gardeners. In this way, we can conserve the heritage of Arkansas. It is also traditional to bring an instrument and join in a pickin’.
