Strange Auditorium at Birmingham Botanical Gardens
Free and open to the public
Join the Library at the Gardens as we celebrate National Seed Swap Day with our first-ever Community Seed Swap! Bring any open-pollinated, heirloom seed you would like to share: locally saved seeds, specialty seeds, or excess seeds you purchased.
Learn tips and tricks, take home books, and chat with others who share a love of seed saving. For more information, contact Library Director Hope Long at [email protected] or 205.588.4593.
If you would like to volunteer to help with the Community Seed Swap, contact Alice Thompson Moore, volunteer coordinator with the Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens, at [email protected]
