Want to get involved in the West County Community Seed Exchange?

Join us for our end of the year Core Group Meeting to plan for the next year, and look at what more we can do to be a local seed resource for the community, to build a network of seed savers and help build a resilient food system from the first step of seed.  We can always use more help in caring for our seed library and  the seed garden and organizing classes.

Saturday November 15th from 10am to noon.
