Third Annual Kaw Valley Seeds Project Fair
Sat, Feb 11, 2012 10am to 3pm
2110 Harper Street, Lawrence, KS
Jan 25, 2012

The 2012 Fair is coming soon! It's free for all ages.

More than 1,200 visitors came to last year's fair, and we expect a similar turnout this year for this wonderful event.

The fair will include a seed exchange, exhibits, local producers and a children's activity center. Food from the Lawrence restaurant Local Burger will be available for purchase throughout the day, and tables will be set up near the kitchen. Experts on seed saving will be on hand throughout the day to answer questions.

The Kaw Valley Seeds Project is a nonprofit whose mission is to create a Local Living Seed Reserve by fostering a network of people committed to growing and eating, sharing and bartering, buying and selling primary seed varieties of the Kansas River Valley. In addition, our goal is to educate the general public on the pleasures of growing their own food by teaching them how to save, store and plant seeds from their own gardens, and where to obtain organic and local seed lines.

Local Burger will be selling food at the Fair again this year!
