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 http://www.usna.usda.gov/ 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.

Please make checks out to “USNA.” More details will be posted at http://www.usna.usda.gov/ and at http://www.washingtongardener.com/ in the upcoming weeks.
