Coming up soon: the Washington Gardener Seed Exchanges! The January 28 event at Brookside Gardens will feature our own Jon Traunfeld as well as the great Ira Wallace of Southern Exposure Seed Exchange (of which more in my next catalog post). February 4 at Green Spring Gardens brings you Barbara Melera of Landreth Seeds, and Linna the Locavore.
Seed exchanges are a great chance to try some new seeds without committing to buying a whole pack, and to share what you've gathered yourself from your garden or what you have left over and won't use. Plus a chance to learn something about seed saving and to spy on what everyone else is growing. What could be better?
If you know of any other seed exchanges going on in Maryland to which the public is invited, please mention them in the comments. Thanks!
