The 8th Annual Community Seed Swap is Friday, January 31st at the Church of the Nativity in downtown Huntsville.

The event promotes heritage seed and the art of seed saving. Food and Drinks will be provided by local artisans!

Doors will open at 6pm. This year we will be featuring ‘seed stories”. Got a special story about the seed you are sharing, let us know!

We ask for a $0-30 donation at the door – in the spirit of community no one will be turned away. All proceeds are directly given to the Sand Mountain Seed Bank.

Bring your saved seeds to share! Take seeds home for your 2020 garden! Seed Bank reps will be on hand to teach about heirloom seeds and seed saving techniques.

The Sand Mountain Seed Bank has been in the forefront of heritage seed, cultivating and sharing seed varieties that have been growing in this area for over a hundred years.
