The 11th Annual
San Luis Valley Seed Exchange will be held at
Joyful Journey Hot Springs Spa.
You are invited to the 11th Annual San Luis Valley Seed Exchange! This fun and informative community event will be hosted Saturday, March 6th from 10am-5pm at Joyful Journey Hot Springs Spa. Celebrate spring with us at this free fundraising event.
This annual Seed Exchange connects gardeners, seed producers and the community over agricultural education and exchange.
At its roots, the event is a community seed swap. Over the years, it has grown into an event dedicated to promoting sustainability in the San Luis Valley. There will be discussions on a wide range of issues, including water, community gardens, biomass, seed saving libraries, and more.
There will be a community seed swap table in addition to a variety of community-involved vendors. Vendors will bring educational materials, demonstrations, local handmade products, healthy food, and more. The event will also feature a full day of speakers, discussing topics such as the aquifer & closed basin project, pollinator gardens, the hemp biomass bridge, seed libraries, community gardens, high altitude gardening, and more. Each talk will be followed by a community discussion.
The San Luis Valley Seed Exchange is free to the public. However, donations will be accepted at the event. All of the proceeds will be donated to local organizations focused on youth garden education in the San Luis Valley.
The San Luis Valley Seed Exchange is fully focused on vegetable farming and permaculture. Though, because they overlap, we will also touch upon the efforts of hemp farmers and entrepreneurs into the overall discussion of sustainability in the valley.
This year, we will have additional resources to view the event, speakers, and discussions virtually, if you choose to do so.
We look forward to seeing you there!
