harvest fest


Come join the fun at the 12th annual Southwest Michigan Harvest Fest to be held on Sunday, September 21, 2014. The Fest runs from 11:30 AM to 5:30 PM and is held at Tillers International in Scotts, Michigan, a short ride east from Kalamazoo and Portage.

As part of this year's demonstration on seed saving, we are encouraging attendees to bring some seeds to share or trade. The focus of the presentation will be on heirloom vegetable seeds capable of producing viable seeds, but feel free to bring left over seeds from your last garden planting or even seeds from your favorite native plants. If you have any specific or interesting knowledge about the plants your seeds will grow, bring that too!

Be sure to stop by the teacup-style silent auction in front of the Blacksmith Shop. Purchase as many tickets as you like and drop them in the “tea cup” next to items you would like to win. We’ll be drawing winners at 4:00. You don’t have to be present to win, we’ll contact you to pick up your prize(s).
