FIVE VALLEYS SEED LIBRARY SEED SWAP
Learn about seeds and gardening at your library when Missoula Public Library hosts the annual Five Valleys Seed Library Seed Swap. The event will include a variety of gardening resources from local experts and vendors, including free seeds available for you to take home. Seeds to trade or share are welcome; bring your saved seed from last year’s harvest to help keep this awesome program going.
In addition to the seed swap there will be kids’ activities and two free mini-workshops. We have 2 wonderful speakers lined up for the Seed Swap. Elizabeth Swank of the Crow Nation, will speak about the Montana Indigenous Food Sovereignty Initiative. She will also discuss growing traditional native plants for the seeds and distributing seed bundles to the elders across Montana to propagate and use the plants for medicinal purposes. Kareen Erbe from Bozeman, is a garden designer who uses permaculture principles to create sustainable urban food forests. Erbe will discuss ways of incorporating native plants into your garden. Don’t miss the popular House Plant Swap – bring one, take one! You can also bring plant and gardening books to trade.
