University of Maryland Extension and Frostburg Grows are proud to present a community seed exchange. This event is meant to bring together local gardeners from all skill levels to share seeds, suggestions, and stories.
Gardeners of all ages are strongly encouraged to bring seeds to share- but seed sharing is not required. Allegany County Master Gardeners will be present to help visitors navigate the event and to answer any garden-related questions. Master Gardeners will also be giving talks/demonstrations on a variety of subjects. This is a family-friendly event and there will be a kids corner with a guided workshop on DIY seed bombs. There will also be a number of local vendors sharing information and products on a variety of topics including health and wellness, horticulture, and conservation. This event is free and open to the public.
