Meeting This Thursday and Seedling Swap – April 25th – Salt Lake County Seed Swap

Please join us, bring your seedlings, and chat about composting this Thursday, April 25 at 7:00 at the Ruth Vine Tyler Library for our Salt Lake County Seed Swap April meeting.  The library is located at:

8041 South Wood Street (55 West) Midvale, Utah 84047

Our meeting goes from 7:00 P.M. – 8:30 P.M.  Be sure to bring your composting tips (even your failures are worth sharing) and any extra seedlings you have to swap. A note on the plants – they do not have to be in fancy containers with beautiful labels. As long as they’re healthy, non-hybrid plants with some kind of label (the more information, the better), we’ll be happy!

To RSVP go here:  Salt Lake County Seed Swap April Meeting

Best Garden Seed Companies

Mother Earth News shares, ” Here are some of our favorite garden seed companies from around the country.”

Note: Not all of these will sell only OP, organic seeds so be sure of what you’re buying. If you want to steer clear of Monsanto/Semenis seed , just double check with the company – most are very happy to help you get what you need!  Also if you want to save seeds make sure they are open pollinated and/or an heirloom variety.
