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 on Saturday, April 17 and Sunday, April 18 from 9am-5pm at Joyful Journey Hot Springs Spa. Celebrate spring with us at this free 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.
This year’s theme is Food Sovereignty, Storage & Security. The event will feature speakers and panel discussions, as well as many local vendors, a large community seed swap table, and a few food vendors. Vendors will bring educational materials, demonstrations, local handmade products, healthy food, and more. This year’s topic, Food Sovereignty, Storage & Security, has been an important topic for many years, but the recent events have highlighted this issue further.
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 the garden program at the Moffat k-12 Consolidated school.
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.
We are looking forward to continuing the tradition of offering space to discuss the important issues facing our valley and community. 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!
