UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL ARKANSAS, CONWAY, ARKANSAS –Co-sponsored by the Ozark Folk Center State Park and the University of Central Arkansas, the Conserving Arkansas’s Agricultural Heritage (CAAH!) Project will host the second annual Ozark Seed Swap on February 21st, 2009 at the Ozark Folk Center State Park Bois D’ Arc Conference Center. Last year was a huge success, with over one hundred seed savers in attendance and hundreds of heirloom varieties exchanging hands. We are excited to invite you to bring some seeds and stories to swap with other Ozark seed savers and yarn spinners. If you have no seeds to swap but want to get started, come along to mingle with gardeners and farmers who can help. We can conserve the heritage of Arkansas while we share good stories, beautify our yards, and of course, get free seeds. Refreshments and music (a pickin’) will be provided.
