Salt Lake County Seed Swap – Local Seed Bank and Classes by Shad Enghilterra

Lovely article by Shad Enghilterra in Ingredients Magazine  about the Salt Lake County Seed Swap and what we do.

“The group has a seed bank that people are able to trade with or members can borrow from.  They do need to give seeds back from the next harvest. Membership in the Seed Swap is simply filling out a form.  Classes are usually scheduled for the last Thursday of the month.  Everyone is welcome, and there is usually a seed swap at the end of the learning experience.”
