SEED-SAVERS-KC - 1st Annual WINTER Seed Exchange
Sponsored by KCFood Circle and SEED-SAVERS KC

Saturday, January 19, 2013.
11:30am until 2:30pm.

(no starts, no plantings, no pots, no soil)

...January is the time (maybe your last chance) to get ahead of the spring planting cycle -- if you don't have seeds or bulbs to exchange, come for the HOW-TO workshop/demos and freebies!

Saturday, January 19th, 2013 11:30am - 2:30pm
at the Anita B. Gorman Discovery Center
** 4750 Troost Ave. Kansas City, MO 64110 **

The meeting room for this event will be the Nature's Bounty Classroom. We hope to have a good crowd of seed savers attend this premiere event. Anyone interested in seed saving is invited whether you have seeds to trade or not. There will be videos, demos, and speakers on various topics. Please spread the word to anyone you feel may have an interest. The intention is to set up a local seed library.
