2021 High Country Seed Swap Will Not Take Place in Person

— Written By and last updated by

Unfortunately, there is no way that the High Country Seed Swap can take place safely in 2021, given both COVID-19 itself, and the state restrictions about indoor public events in response to the pandemic.

However, each reader can continue sharing saved seeds with (and obtaining seeds from) the public libraries in Ashe and Watauga Counties, as described here:

N.C. Cooperative Extension hopes to revive the High Country Seed Swap tradition in 2022. Keep in touch with ideas about what you hope to add then!
