If you are looking for seeds and ideas for your vegetable garden, come to the Santa Fe Seed Exchange on Tuesday, March 15, 2016 from 3 pm-6 pm in Frenchy’s Barn on Agua Fria and Osage Ave. The City Parks Division and Home Grown New Mexico are hosting this event for all community gardens, school gardens and home gardeners. It’s free and you’ll get great seeds!
Other groups who will be at the Seed Swap:
The Santa Fe Master Gardeners will have several info tables there where you can get how-to info on composting, growing native plants and more.
In addition The SeedBroadcast organization will have their seedbroadcasting truck present. They can answer questions about saving seeds and have seed story recording equipment to record your story. Tell your story about the seed, where you got it, how you planted it and more. See their website for stories across America. Do you have a great seed story? Tell them!
The Tomato Lady will be there at the Home Grown New Mexico table inside the barn. There will be some of her tomato seeds and giant vegetable varieties available as well in case any of you want to try growing a giant this year!
This is great resource for gardeners and a fabulous way to start off the growing season and catch up with your fellow gardeners. Vegetable, flower and herb seeds will be available inside the barn.
There are plenty of seeds available so come even if you do not have any to share. Bring flower, herb, vegetable and other seeds if you have any. Please label any seeds you bring.
If you have questions, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
So while winter is here and the gardens are sleeping, we at Home Grown New Mexico are not sleeping. With the new year here, we are busy planning classes and events that we on think will be interesting to you in 2016. We plan on having a meeting later this month to firm things up and will then share with you all the good news as it unfolds.
We also will have some changes in how the membership works this year that we know you will like. Our membership doubled last year and hope you will all join again!
Last year we know we were on the right track as every class filled up and we got some great feedback. We learned that Sundays seems to be good for everyone and you all will even travel on a field trip like the one we had up at Gordon Tooley’s Tree Farm in Truchas.
Some other highlights last year included the cheese classes (we plan to have more this year), the Permaculture classes, the Seed Exchange, the Early Spring Planting Class, the Microgreens Class, and actually every class was great! I know cause I went to every one of them and learned so much from all the great teachers.
Then we had a great Kitchen Garden and Coop Tour last summer with every home on the tour having fantastic gardens that gave us all some great ideas for our own gardens.
We had a potluck in the fall with Deborah Madison as our guest speaker and had a fantastic turnout. It was held at Paul and Christine Drumright’s beautiful home. It seemed like this was the perfect time for everyone to catch up, share some great harvest food, enjoy Paul’s gardens and house and listen to a wonderful speaker.
So let this be a tickler before we unfold what 2016 reveals!
Happy 2016 everyone!!
Chairperson, Home Grown New Mexico
The Seed exchange this year was a big success. At any given time we had over 20 people there bringing and taking seeds. Probably had about 150 people there overall. Many seeds were gone by the end. Many thanks to the Master Gardeners, Seedbroadcast and Poki Pottin from Gaia Gardens for coming and sharing. Always a fun event and a great kick off for this season’s gardening. This event and the great weather we’ve been having makes me want to get out in the garden!
