The information below pertains to the 2014 Festival.
We will post our updated programming in Spring 2015.
Meet legendary and everyday seed savers at our annual Old Timey Seed Swap. Come share your seeds, your knowledge, and your enthusiasm. Bring any seeds you have to share, whether you’ve saved them yourself or varieties left over from this year’s garden. This is an informal, relaxed event. Beginners are welcome.
This event will be held from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., on the South Terrace of Monticello. Hosted by Rodger Winn.
When not at his day job with the local power company, Rodger Winn is a certified organic gardener growing heirloom fruits, vegetables, and flowers for seed and market. Additionally, he teaches sustainable vegetable gardening to local garden clubs and the extension service master gardener program with emphasis on incorporating flowers and herbs in the vegetable garden. In 2008, Winn was named Seed Saver of the Year by Southern Seed Legacy.
