SEED SWAP & PLANT EXCHANGE
Bob Turner and Dawn Andersson look over some of the vegetables seed they have in their Calumet home. Turner and Andersson started Keweenaw Seed Swap and Plant Exchange in 2014 to offer gardeners access to seeds and plants they might not otherwise have.
The idea of the seed swap is to grow a group of gardeners dedicated to the development of locally adapted, open pollinated crops. As the World situation becomes more uncertain, and good food, if available, becomes more expensive, growing one’s own food is something that gives a feeling of some control over one’s destiny. It is a very satisfying and peace giving activity. Over the years of saving seed we can develop plants that grow extra well in our area, and share them with each other. At the swap the seeds are all free. All gardeners are welcome. If you have seeds to share, bring them, if not, come anyway, and bring some seeds back next season. We can learn a lot from each other!
The Plant exchange is to geared to bring in your Perennial or Annual plant and exchange them for one in return.
