Do you have leftover seeds from your seed swap or seed library?

We can help circulate them to our representatives who will put them to good use at other community seed swaps. Every week during the winter, we mail books and table-top materials to Seedy Saturdays and Seedy Sundays all across the country, so we can easily include your leftover seeds in our packages. Our volunteers will make sure the seeds get to their local seed swap tables and seed libraries, so you'll know that they won't go to waste.

Mail your leftover seeds to:

Farm Research Field Day

Monday September 16, 2019          2 to 5
Wysmykal Farm
1121 Chapman Settlement Road, Amherst Shore, NS

Wysmykal Farm is one of 7 farms in Atlantic Canada leading innovative on-farm research projects to adapt and improve varieties of our favourite crops, in partnership with USC Canada. This field day will feature a farm tour and talks by farmers Charles and Jessy, as well visiting researcher, Helen Jensen of USC Canada. We'll hear about their on-farm variety trials, how on-farm research is contributing to a national plant breeding program, and why farms are such important innovation hubs for plant breeding. All are welcome to this free event, especially organic and ecological farmers who have an interest in conducting trials and research on their own farms.
