Join the Resilience Hub on Saturday April 6 from 10 am – 1 pm for the First Annual Southern Maine Seed Swap and Scion Exchange
We’re partnering with MOFGA and Fedco to bring the Seed and Scion Exchange to Southern Maine. Bring any seeds, cuttings and scionwood to swap — or if you don’t have any, bring baked goods, homemade jam, tinctures and salves, anything that you’ve made and want to share with others!
In the past, MOFGA has given away scionwood from well over 200 fruit varieties and is generously donating all leftover sticks from their swap which is the weekend before. They will also supply tape, labels, and markers. Fedco Seeds will have a supply of seeds to share, too! This is going to be a fun, kid-friendly event — come celebrate the start to the end of winter hibernation with our great community!
This is a free event. We rely on community donations to support the work we do at the Resilience Hub. If you’d like to make a donation, click here. There will also be a donation jar at the event.
