Swap 'Dem Seeds!

Hey kids, you know what time it is? IT'S SEED SWAPPIN' TIME!

Yes indeedie, Spring is right around the corner so all of us gardenin' folk are antsy with cabin fever. The dirt! It calls to us! Which means that we're planning our beds and preparing our tools and, yes, swapping our seeds!

Join me and lots of other super cool people at the Washington Gardener Magazine's 6th Annual Seed Exchange. There'll be seed swapping, door prizes, planting tips, expert speakers, and goodie bags! Woo! Fanfare!

Event Overview

Washington Gardener magazine, the publication for DC-area gardening enthusiasts, is hosting its Sixth Annual Seed Exchange at Brookside Gardens and Green Spring Gardens. These seed swaps are in-person and face-to-face. You bring your extra seeds and swap them with other gardeners. Everyone will leave with a bag full of seeds, new garden friends, and expert planting advice.


This year, there are DUAL Seed Exchanges one week apart and on opposite sides of the Beltway. One Exchange will be in the Visitor's Center Auditorium of the Brookside Gardens, 18oo Glenallen Avenue, Wheaton, MD. The other will be at Green Spring Gardens, 4603 Green Spring Road in Alexandria, VA.


> Saturday, January 29, 2011 (Brookside Gardens, Wheaton, MD)
> Saturday, February 5, 2011 (Green Spring Gardens, Alexandria, VA)

I'll be at the February 5th event, swappin' seeds and telling everyone who will listen about the D.C. Guerilla Gardeners and our fabulousness!

  1. I *hope* I can make 5 February.

    I feel that I have some conflict that day, but it's not on my calendar, eh? I guess I don't. Maybe I can go!!!

  2. Thanks for the bump, DCGG, can't wait to see you in-person!

  3. I went to the seed exchange in Alexandria. My first seed exchange. I had a blast.
