Seed Savers Exchange: Annual Conference and Campout

Every summer, members and friends of the nonprofit Seed Savers Exchange gather in the Bluff Country of northeast Iowa for a weekend of gardening workshops, facility tours, and seed swapping that’s sure to make any seed lover’s heart skip a “beet.”
