Seed saving, gardening event in Carnation March 1

Gardeners and small farmers will find more than seeds this year at the Snoqualmie Valley Seed Exchange and Garden Fair. This fourth annual exchange will be held on Saturday, March 1 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m at the Sno-Valley Senior Center, 4610 Stephens Ave., Carnation. The all-volunteer event is part of a movement to preserve small-scale, regionally adapted, heirloom and open pollinated seeds.

Collect new seeds, talk to other gardeners and farmers, and attend workshops to learn more about seed saving and cultivation. New this year is a local farmers’ forum focusing on local seed development in the Snoqualmie Valley, and tips on vegetable species and varieties that work well in this climate. Exhibits, including a display from the Fall City Historical Society, and oral history interviews of elder farmers and gardeners will round out the event.
