Join the Wylde Center for their annual event to share your seeds/scions, your knowledge, and your enthusiasm for different plant varieties with other gardeners and farmers. We’ll be swapping all types of seeds and cuttings for fruit trees (scions), including heirloom seeds, seeds you save from your own plants, and extra seeds you may have purchased. There will be Master Gardeners on hand to answer gardening questions and the Atlanta Fruits Club / Southern Piedmont Fruit Growers will be present to show you how to graft your cuttings.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER - CHRIS SMITH, SOW TRUE SEED
Title: What I Learned From Growing 76 Different Varieties of Okra

This presentation will share information and photographs about 76 different heirloom varieties of okra grown on three different test plots in Western North Carolina: The Great Okra Trial, The Random Red Okra Trial, and the Oil Seed Okra Trial. Learn about the trials, the okras, and the new and interesting ways that okra can be used as a market crop and as a kitchen ingredient.

Expert okra enthusiast Chris Smith is a seed saver and permacultrist who writes regularly for The Heirloom Gardener, the Mother Earth News blog, and the Farmers’ Almanac blog. His presentations on the versatility of okra have delighted audiences at food and farming festivals and fairs throughout the Southeast. He is Executive Director of The Utopian Seed Project, Communications Manager for Sow True Seed in Asheville, North Carolina, and serves on the boards of The People’s Seed and Slow Food Asheville. His book, The Whole Okra, will be published by Chelsea Green in June 2019.
