Crave a life in full bloom? Stop by Hidden Oaks Nature Center during the month of May to learn how to save and share your own seeds to grow wholesome food and foster sustainability. Drop off seeds you have saved and trade them for someone else’s to spice up your garden and bring something fresh to the mix. What better way to contribute to our community than by reconnecting with the centuries-long tradition of gardening and seed saving.

This program welcomes open-pollinated vegetables, herbs, flowers and native seeds for trade or donation. Please label your seeds and provide care instructions.
