Mike McGrath at WTOP has been a great friend to Washington Gardener Magazine and our Seed Exchange. Today he has been giving great airtime to our upcoming event. Go here to read his brief write-up. His segment should re-air on Saturday too.
I also was interviewed about the current "Compost Happens" theme issue on WAMU's Metro Connection today and that should re-air on Saturday as well. It is archived at this link so you can listen to it anytime online at your leisure.
I'm spending today taking inventory of the sponsor donations for the Seed Exchange's goody bags and door prizes. Many of them have been so generous! They include these recent additions:
150 Gardener Idea Books from Proven Winners
150 Honeybear seed packs from Johnny’s Select Seeds
150 Encore lettuce seed packs from Johnny’s Select Seeds
150 Rudbeckia Cherry Brandy seed packs from Thompson & Morgan
T-shirts from Urban Solar Solutions
Cordless Electric Cultivator from Black & Decker
Buckets of potting soil and compost from Pogo Organics
Trudi Davidoff at Wintersown just emailed me and said: "I sent 150 envelopes, inside each is a brochure with info on how to clean tomato seeds, six packs of tomato seeds---everyone gets three reds, a green-when-ripe, a yellow, and a paper packet of seeds (labeled) that has been donated to WinterSown from an ability-impaired advocacy group, and a slip of paper with an address for anyone who wants to donate seeds to WinterSown." Aren't you just drooling right now?
I'll be glad to have my office and storage space back after the the 31st! :-)
