Learn about Seed Savers Exchange, located north of Decorah during a special program at Cresco Public Library Tuesday, March 19 beginning at 6:30 p.m.

According to its website at: They 'connect thousands of home gardeners, farmers, and others through the world's largest seed exchange, open to all. They collect, store, and regenerate the seeds of thousands of rare, heirloom, and open-pollinated varieties at our Heritage Farm headquarters—as well as back up our collection at the Svalbard Global Seed Vault—in essence saving seeds of these varieties so that they do not disappear. Seed Savers distributes select varieties from the collection through our catalog and website, and the Seed Exchange, so that gardeners everywhere may grow and enjoy these rare treasures. They educate gardeners on best practices for gardening and the time-honored, critical—though nearly forgotten—practice of seed saving.
