Since 1996 the Southern Seed Legacy has hosted an Old Timey Seed Swap at Agrarian Connections Farm near the small town of Crawford in Oglethorpe County, Georgia. The purpose of these seed swaps is to facilitate networking among gardeners and farmers in the Southeast who grow heirloom plants with the hope that the exchange of knowledge, seeds, and enthusiasm will help toward the preservation of unique southern heirloom plant varieties.

We have continued this tradition at the Seed Legacy Farm in Burnsville, NC
