Kaw Valley Seeds Project Fair • Douglas County
Saturday, Feb 11th, 2012 @ 10am
Douglas County Fairgrounds, Building 21 • 2110 Harper St. • Lawrence, KS • Map
The 2012 3rd Annual fair will include a seed exchange, exhibits, a children’s activity center and more than 50 exhibitors offering educational information, gardening products and local farm products. Raffles for various gardening-related prizes will be held throughout the day. Visitors are encouraged to bring open-pollinated (non-hybrid) seed—along with information on its origin—to the KAW VALLEY SEEDS PROJECT table to help build the Seed Reserve. Food from the Lawrence restaurant Local Burger will be available.
Last year’s fair drew more than 1,200 people, and a similar crowd is expected this year. The event is co-sponsored by the Kansas Area Watershed Council and the Douglas County Extension Master Gardeners.
The Kaw Valley Seeds Project is a nonprofit whose mission is to create a Local Living Seed Reserve by fostering a network of people committed to growing and eating, sharing and bartering, and buying and selling primary seed varieties of the Kansas River valley. An additional goal is to educate the general public about the pleasures of growing their own food by teaching them how to save, store and plant seeds from their own gardens, and where to obtain organic or local seed lines.
