Ghosts, Goblins, and Seeds, oh my!
The 4th biannual Community Seed Swap was a success! We here at Idaho Community Gardens, would like to thank Edwards Greenhouse for inviting us to be a part of their annual Fall into Edwards event. Our success was measured in the amount of community members we were able to meet, express our mission to, and share seeds with. Edwards was generous in donating heirloom seeds. Thanks to those who came by and donated seeds! All of us here at Idaho Community Gardens are so grateful and thankful for everyone who participated. We are definitely looking forward to our next Community Seed Swap in the spring.
