Dreaming of Spring? KC Seed Exchange Set for January 28th

Start your planning for spring planting by attending a free Seed Exchange from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 28 at the Anita B. Gorman Discovery Center in Kansas City 4750 Troost Ave., Kansas City, Missouri (click the link for a map). Bring individually labeled envelopes to trade with other gardeners. You may share seeds, bulbs, tubers, essential oils, tinctures, dried herbs, dried veggies, eggs, baked goods, ferments, starters, samples of products you produce, or anything garden related. Please do not bring anything that spreads aggressively or is invasive. Visit www.seedsavers-kc.org for additional information. This program is for all ages and registration is not required.

The seed exchange at the Anita B. Gorman Discovery Center has been taking place for more than a decade now, with a wide variety of seeds from typical garden vegetables and flowers to more exotic landscape plants and even trees. While it’s a bit of a trek into Kansas City, it is usually well worth the drive if you’re a gardening type of person. Seed Savers KC also offers a plant exchange later in the winter/early spring and seed-saving classes throughout the summer and fall. Who knows, maybe you’ll be inspired to start a seed exchange right here in Excelsior Springs?

Only a few years old, the 2013 KC Seed Exchange had already proved to be a popular event with participants from all parts of the KC metro area (video by S Jason Cole).
