Seed Exchange at USNA

Washington Gardener magazine, the publication for DC area gardening enthusiasts, is co-hosting a Seed Exchange with the U.S. National Arboretum on Saturday, January 28 from 12:30-4:00 pm. Unlike most other seed swaps, this one will be in-person and face-to-face. You bring your extra seeds and swap with other gardeners. Even if you don't have any seeds to trade you are welcome to attend! Everyone will leave with a bag full of seeds, new garden friends, and expert planting advice. Seed swap categories will include: natives, edibles, exotics, annuals, perennials, and trees/shrubs. Expert speakers will give brief talks on seed collection and propagation tips. There will be ample time for expert Q&A with USNA staff as well. Registration fee of $15* per person in advance. Go to to print out the registration form or send payment to U.S. National Arboretum, 3501 New York Avenue, NE Washington, DC 20002, Attn: Event Registration, EVSU. Specify "Seed Exchange" and include your full address, phone number, and email. Please make checks out to “USNA.” More details will be posted at and at in the upcoming weeks. There is a limited enrollment of 125 maximum participants so be sure to register early!

*FONA members and Washington Gardener subscribers discount rate of $12 per person.
