The Wylde Center has a new date for a seed and scion exchange, originally slated for Saturday, Jan. 23. It has been moved to Sunday, Jan. 24, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. due to the weather.

The event will be held at the Decatur Library, located at 215 Sycamore Street.

The event is free and open to all gardeners. An announcement on the Wylde Center website says, “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 people on hand to answer question about how to save seed and how to graft your cuttings.”
