Seed Swap and Scion Exchange
Sunday, March 25
MOFGA's Common Ground Education Center, Unity
FREE, no registration required
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.
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. If you don't have seeds or scionwood to share, don't fret and join us anyways – maybe bring some baked goods or fertile hatching eggs instead!
We’ll supply labels, tape and markers, and we’ll be selling T-shirts, books, grafting supplies and rootstock.
Admission is free. Information and schedule of activities
