    The Third Annual Floyd County Seed Swap will be held at the Rome Floyd County Library on March 5, 2016!

    Co-sponsored by Berry College’s Environmental Studies Program, Action Ministries Rome, Keep Rome Floyd Beautiful, and the Rome Federated Garden Clubs, Inc., the Rome Floyd County Library will host the 3rd Floyd County Seed Swap on March 5, 2016 with a lecture on seed saving basics by Dr. Brian Campbell of Berry College from 11:00-12:00 and the seed swap from 12:00-2:00. We invite you to bring some open-pollinated (heirloom) seeds, bulbs, plants, seedlings, cuttings, starts, and stories to swap with other seed savers, gardeners and farmers. If you have no seeds to swap but want to get started, come along to mingle with gardeners and farmers who can help. We conserve the heritage of the Ridge and Valley province and Floyd County as we share good stories, beautify our yards, feed our friends and family, and of course, trade seeds and plants.
    Got Whippoorwills? Razorbacks? Red Rippers? Pencil Cob? Hickory King? Creasebacks? Turkey Craws? Want some? Come to the 3rd Annual Floyd County Seed Swap!
    Berry College’s Environmental Studies program will establish a master collection of endangered seeds and related cultural and agronomic information, and distributes such seeds at annual Seed Swaps. Berry College students and professors document the seeds, grow them out in campus gardens to distribute the next season, and catalogue them in a database of local varieties. If you have family heirlooms that you would like to donate or have documented, or for more information, please contact Dr. Brian Campbell, bcampbell@berry.edu
