High Mowing Organic Seeds' Spring Social

3/6/2013

Join High Mowing Organic Seeds for the fifth annual HMS Spring Social on Saturday, March 16, 2013. Participate in educational workshops for farmers and gardeners, tour the HMS warehouse and hoop house, enjoy the potluck dinner, swap seeds and network with fellow growers. Sessions start at 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. The potluck starts at 5 p.m.

Workshop topics include garden planning, tomato grafting, and beginner farmer round table. Tour focuses include seed quality control, seed cleaning, and winter hoop house growing. Please bring a dish or drink to share, as well as your own plate, cup and utensils. Don't let your lack of a potluck item stop you from joining in the evening festivities.

During the potluck and networking, a colorful slideshow will offer a virtual tour of High Mowing Organic Seeds' production farm, trials gardens, and a selection of outstanding varieties. The seed swap is open to everyone, bring seeds to share or simply take some to try.
