Hoosac Harvest Annual Seedling Swap Returns

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Hoosac Harvest's Annual Seedling Swap returns to downtown this year on Saturday, May 25 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the North Adams Farmers Market in its new location on Main Street.
All seedlings are available at no cost; there's no requirement to bring any in order to take some home. Whether individuals are dropping off seedlings for exchange or visiting to browse, it's advisable to bring a tray for collecting new plants. Shared seedlings may include surplus vegetables or flowers purchased or cultivated, as well as cuttings or excess plants from personal yards. Participants are encouraged to bring and exchange whatever they can.
All donations go toward subsidizing CSA shares—weekly "shares" of a local farmer's produce over the course of an annual growing season—for people in the community.
