Event at Fort on March 10

The Fort de Chartres Heritage Garden will host its annual Heirloom Seed Swap on Saturday, March 10 from 10 a.m.-noon. The event – which was postponed due to poor weather on Feb. 17 – will be hosted by Carol Kuntz, an area master gardener who has been the fort’s volunteer garden curator since 2010.

The seed exchange will take place in the Fort de Chartres Guards’ Room, and free heirloom seeds and sample seed packets will be available for visitors. Visitors can bring their favorite or extra seeds to the fort and share their seed bounty while having an opportunity to select seed from the garden project or from others’ shared seeds.
