Ewalu Hosting Seeds Savers Exchange Presentation

March 9 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us at Ewalu’s Creation Center near Strawberry Point on Saturday, March 9th to learn about Seeds Savers Exchange, based in Winneshiek County.

Brennan Allsworth, an SSE field technician, will give a presentation from 1 to 3 pm about what the nonprofit organization does to preserve heirloom seeds and how you can be involved.

Based just outside Decorah, Seed Savers Exchange stewards America’s culturally diverse and endangered garden and food crop legacy for present and future generations. The organization educates and connects people through collecting, regenerating, and sharing heirloom seeds, plants, and stories. Seed Savers Exchange has been saving and sharing seeds with gardeners since 1975. Today, SSE houses the nation’s largest nongovernmental seed bank of its kind (some 20,000 varieties) at Heritage Farm, 890 scenic acres in Winneshiek County, Iowa. SSE not only safeguards these varieties for generations to come but also encourages gardeners and farmers worldwide to grow, harvest, and share heirloom seeds as well as recount the inspirational stories behind them. SSE also educates gardeners on gardening and the time-honored and critical practice of seed saving.
