Seed and story swap at LMU

Jay FitzOur Town Eats

Join the inaugural Heirloom Seed and Story Exchange at Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 26, at the Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum. The event is free and open to the public.


The Museum is facilitating an exchange of heirloom seeds along with an exchange of family food and medicinal recipes made from those plants.

The collection of both seeds and stories donated to the Museum, in addition to the seeds that you swap with others, will serve to preserve and interpret the area’s agricultural heritage. Harrogate is uniquely positioned to attract visitors from East Tennessee, Southwest Virginia and Southeastern Kentucky.

To participate, bring seeds to exchange and share, or copies of printed food and medicinal recipes. Tables in the Pioneer Village will allow you to sit and talk with other participants, exchange materials or compare agricultural techniques.

As supplies last, the Museum will also have informational materials, seed packets, seed catalogs, and bagging and labeling materials free of charge. Info: natalie.sweet@lmunet.edu
