The Albertville Museum will host:

"Heirloom Seed Swap for Fall/Winter Planting"
Sunday September 16, 2018 at 2:00 P.M
The Albertville Museum
610 West Main Street, across the street from the Old Albertville Cemetery
Charlotte Hagood will present the program.

Charlotte Hagood, co-founder of the "Sand Mountain Seed Bank" will educate the visitors of the importance and benefits of using locally adapted seeds, how to save the seeds and tell about the Sand Mountain Seed Bank. Visitors may share seeds with the Sand Mountain Seed Bank or share with others. Charlotte will bring seeds for fall/winter planting from the Sand Mountain Seed Bank.

You might wonder what are heirloom seeds?
Heirlooms come from seeds that have been handed down for generations in a particular region or area, hand-selected by gardeners for a special trait. Heirloom vegetables are open-pollinated, which means they're pollinated by insects or wind without human intervention.

Charlotte is a life long Albertville resident, the daughter of the late Dan and Jane Hagood. Because of her vast knowledge of heirloom seeds, preserving them and the importance and benefits of using heirloom seeds when planting, she has spoken to many groups in Marshall County and traveled the state sharing her knowledge of heirloom seeds and promoting the Sand Mountain Seed Bank. Also she has a love and talent for traditional folk art, which she generously shares her time and talents with groups at the museum, Moundville and other arts and crafts festivals.

Sunday October 21, 2018 2:00 PM at the museum, Charlotte will demonstrate how to create corn shuck dolls for people of all ages. This is a "Make and Take Activity." Another "Make and Take Activity" will be Sunday November 18, 2018 at 2:00 P.M. at the museum. She and other museum volunteers will demonstrate how to make "Victorian Christmas Tree Ornaments" for children of all ages. Participants may make at least 2 ornaments, one for the museum tree and one to take home for their tree. The ornaments will be similar to the ornaments made by Albertville's children and parents during the Victorian Era.

In addition, Museum volunteer Louise Radanovich will demonstrate how to make quill pens.

So you see we have a lot going on at the museum. Please join us for fun and fellowship.
