GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Plant your seeds and they will grow. That's the message behind Greensboro's very first seed exchange.
Jennifer Thompson, who organized the event joined WFMY News 2's Tracey McCain on the Good Morning Show to explain how the seed exchange works.
"They'll be showing up with seeds of their choice. They will be organized per category once they walk in the front door then they'll be free to walk around to other tables to trade and exchange seeds," explained Thompson. "And if you don't have any seeds, we're hoping to have lots to be able to giveaway as well."
Thompson says seed exchanges are popular all over the world, and wanted to bring one to Greensboro to cultivate growing and sustainability in the community.
"There's a lot of people here in Greensboro doing amazing things in their backyards using heirloom seeds as well as hybrid varieties and I feel we need a place to get together to talk about them. Why not get tips from your neighbors, your friends and your community for how to grow," she added.
The Greensboro Seed Exchange event is Sunday, November 10, 2013 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. It's at the Blind Tiger located at 1819 Spring Garden Street in Greensboro. There will be live music, raffles and great prizes. The best part it's free -- just bring some of your choice seeds to trade. For more information call
