Seed Sharing Continues To Grow
Our community has demanded not one but TWO seed-sharing events this year. The first annual Seed Share Event is moving to a new location this year! You can join us Saturday, February 25, 2017, 11 am to 5:00 pm, at the Farmory, 10800 Airport Road, Columbia, 95310. Plenty of food, farmers, and fresh produce will be available, and of course there will be plenty of seeds, SEEDS, SEEDS!! Bring seeds you have saved with you to trade, bring envelopes to take seeds home with you, and donate to FoCuS to bring home even more seeds for your garden. The lineup of speakers for the event will be announced shortly.
Our second Seed Exchange will be held March 11, 10 am to 4 pm, at the Knights Ferry General Store and Tavern, located in Knights Ferry. Come be part of this lovely community and spend a day absorbing its history and local color. Owners of the General Store, Bethany and Andrew, have been kind enough to donate space for both seed sharing and speakers and will provide food for hungry folks in their restaurant. The event will also include music and local vendors. The General Store is located in the historic downtown of Knights Ferry. Proceeds generated from these seed shares are used for future seed purchases and to help fund community and school garden projects. If you have a need for a sustainable project in your area, please contact FoCuS and present your idea for review.
