Seed Swap event- February 12th, 2022
Carbondale Community Farmers Market teamed up with Carbondale Food Autonomy and Food Works for a Seed Swap event that took place in February . Customers came and shopped the market and made their way over to the seed swap tables. There they found a wide variety of seeds that included vegetables, flowers, herbs, and native plants. U of I Extension office was on site to provide gardening information. Families were able to sit down to a Seed Bomb activity. Families decided what seeds that wanted to plant and color of paper they wanted in their seed bombs. Come spring kids will be able to plant these bombs in their garden or a pot and watch them grow!
