Public Lands FERN Seed Swap by F.E.R.N.

National Seed Swap Day

Framingham, MA | January, 27th 2024

Participant. Hosted by Public Lands in Framingham.

F.E.R.N. is excited to participate in Public Lands’ seed swap in celebration for National Seed Swap Day!

Public Lands provided the space for several organizations and people in the community to come together and share native seeds with the public! We were thrilled to be able to have conversations with the local community, as well as share several pounds of native seeds that New England Wetland Plants generously donated for us to freely distribute on the day of the event. Learn more about the event here.
