Snake River Seeds Harvest Hoe Down

This is Snake River Seeds’ third annual Harvest Hoedown, and this year we are throwing the doors wide open, inviting everyone who cares about food, agriculture and culture to come celebrate with us! The Harvest Hoedown is when we literally put down our hoes and gather to bring in our harvests of seed crops, share stories about the season, and celebrate the bounty of our region. Come meet farmers who are producer members of our seed growing co-operative, and gardeners who are seed-savers and members of our seed library, and watch with wonder as the seeds they’ve grown pile up! Enjoy tasty finger-food, delicious Cinder wine, live music, and a special brief presentation about Culture in Agriculture. Also meet the artists behind our Seedy Art Project, see their works, and bid in the silent auction.

Rich, regional cultures create not only beauty and well-being, but also solutions to some of the biggest challenges we face. Our mission is to educate and inspire a generation of…
