SLV Seed Exchange

April 2 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

San Luis Valley Seed Exchange (SLVSE) has been annually organized and supported by its founder and volunteers; and during the last 8 years, facilitated by Joyful Journey Hot Springs Spa. Saguache County Sustainable Environment & Economic Development (ScSEED) is the organization’s fiscal sponsor. Jae Sanders and Bob Pedersen are co-presidents.

Through the hosting of seed exchange events, education around seed saving, regenerative agriculture, and supporting local food producers, SLVSE’s mission is to enable more resiliency and food security.

This year we are collaborating with several other regional, food-centric organizations.

This year’s theme is Nutrition: Nourishing our Bodies through the Garden. Speakers hail from the SLV and Paonia. The talks will begin at 9am in the Event Yurt and culminate in a panel discussion at 3pm. Around 1pm there will be an opportunity for anyone in attendance to take the mic for up to 2 minutes to share what they have to offer, what they need, what’s happening, or just what they think the community should know.

First time speaking at our event, and giving his presentation in Spanish, is Jess Flores, manager of the Rio Grande Farm Park, speaking on plant breeding and F1 Hybrids. A translator will interpret into English. Dr. Devon Pea of The Acequia Institute, San Luis, CO and University of Washington, will discuss the importance of local landrace heirloom varieties. Also speaking on landrace varieties and their higher nutrient value is Lyn Howe from Paonia, CO. The Crestone Elephant Cloud’s Michelle Beelendorf will talk about the nutritional value of local, organic, heirloom foods. We will have a panel discussion including Dr. Pea and Shirley Romero, founder of Move Mountains Youth Project. Shirley’s pilot intern project paid over a dozen high school interns in 2021 to plant, tend, harvest and process indigenous foods on their inherited land within the Sangre de Cristo Land Grant using their traditional agricultural practices. Our website, SLVSE.com, will have more information and a recording of 2021 and 2022 talks.

The 2022 seed exchange is on Saturday, April 2 at Joyful Journey, beginning at 9am. To make a tax deductible donation please send a check payable to ScSEED, with SLV Seed Exchange in the memo line, to Joyful Journey Hot Springs Spa, 28640 CR 58EE, Moffat, CO 81143.
