Along with Action Ministries Rome, Keep Rome Floyd Beautiful and Rome's Federated Garden Clubs, Berry College's Environmental Studies Program will participate in the third annual Floyd County Seed Swap on Saturday

The event will take place at the Rome Floyd County Library and will include information for individuals interested in saving seeds and gardening. It will start will a lecture from 11 a.m. to noon followed by trading from noon to 2 p.m. 

“We conserve the heritage of the Ridge and Valley Province and Floyd County as we share good stories, beautify our yards, feed our friends and family, and of course, trade seeds and plants," Brian Campbell ,who is the event coordinator and an associate professor at Berry, said.

The Environmental Studies program at Berry College is working on creating a collection of seeds which are endangered, and these seeds will be some of the ones that are swapped during the event.

Those who do not have seeds to trade can bring envelopes to acquire seeds or offer advice for those in attendance.
