Seed swaps are a rewarding way to build community and share information about gardening, plant varieties, and each others’ projects. Most seed swaps happen in late fall, winter or early spring, when seed crops have been harvested and when it’s not too late to plant the seeds for the following year.
This seed exchange event is being held at Joyful Journey Hot Springs is proud to sponsor the 2017 San Luis Valley Seed Exchange, scheduled for February 19 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. in their conference center. They will have seeds to exchange, information tables, gardening books, tours of our on-site greenhouse, speakers, food, fun and community. Programs will be available with a discount coupon for soaking.
Admission and “exchange only” tables are free but a $5 donation is suggested and the proceeds will be donated to a local charity.

By sharing these “Seeds of Gratitude” we can invest in our most precious seeds: the youth of the community.
