Seed swap, scionwood exchange, and newly added this year... starter cultures. Also, educational workshops.
For gardeners and orchardists, it’s the most wonderful flea market in the world. Not only that – most of the best stuff is free!
MOFGA, the Maine Tree Crop Alliance, and Fedco will once again host the Seed Swap and Scionwood Exchange at MOFGA’s Common Ground Exhibition Hall in Unity.
You won't want to miss the usual excellent selection of educational workshops. As always, Mark Fulford will teach his annual grafting class. Other workshops will cover permaculture, organic orcharding, seed saving and more. John Bunker will talk about varietal selection as well as MOFGA's new Heritage Orchard. (see article).
Please bring any seeds, scionwood or cuttings you have to share freely with others. In recent years we have given away scionwood from well over 200 fruit varieties. These contributions make the day a success.
We’ll supply labels, tape and markers, and we’ll be selling T-shirts, books, grafting supplies and rootstock.
Admission is free.
Something New is Brewing at the Seed Swap and Scion Exchange!
This year we are adding an exciting new section to the Swap! We're calling not only for Seed and Scion, but for any exciting starter you might have to share. Bring your sourdough starter, kombucha scoby, cheese or yogurt cultures, compost starter, or anything else you are currently cultivating that could be shared regeneratively! Make sure to bring a few jars to pack home new varieties.
