WILLIAMSON, W.Va. – The Health Innovation HUB located on Third Avenue was the site for the fourth annual seed swap sponsored by The Williamson Health and Wellness Center (WHWC) in conjunction with the Williamson Farmers Market.
About 30-35 farmers and potential farmers were on hand to swap seeds, tips and ideas for the upcoming growing season.
Larry Phipps with Grandad’s Barn Farm, Pikeville, Ky. and Doug Dudley of Dudley’s Farm at Hardy, Ky had vendor tables set up with a variety of heirloom seeds, onion sets and other types of seeds.
Maria Arnot with the WHWC, diabetes division, said, “This is a good chance to get growers and gardeners together to trade heirloom seeds.”
A drawing was held for a tiller, donated to the event by Junk and Disorderly, a former business in downtown Williamson. The tiller was won by Larry Phipps.
