All workshops for our 6th annual Free the Seeds fair will be held online via Zoom this year. See our 2021 fair page for the schedule and links to sign up. You must register to get the link to attend.
Why virtual this year?
Planning for each year’s fair starts more than six months in advance. Location is one of the first decisions the organizing committee needs to make. Flathead Valley Community College, which has provided space for the fair since 2016, was not able to commit to an in-person event so far in advance due to uncertainties about where we’d be with the pandemic. We scouted other potential venues in the Flathead Valley that would be large enough to hold an in-person seed swap and maintain social distancing. All were already booked for that date or were priced outside our budget.
We are looking forward to holding our 7th annual Free the Seeds fair in person again. In the meantime, enjoy this year’s workshops virtually! All workshops will be recorded, so if you can’t attend one you’ll be able to view them later here on the website.
