We put out the call in our January Reader Contest for a logo and/or slogan for National Seed Swap Day. This day takes place the last Saturday of each January and celebrates the saving and sharing of seeds by home gardeners across the United States and beyond.
Our winner is Matthew Smith of Richwood, OH, who submitted this simple, striking design:
Matthew said, "Sharing seeds and fostering the ability of
communities to garden is something I'm deeply passionate about. I'm
excited to contribute this."
We hope those in the greater Washington, DC, region will join us in celebrating National Seed Swap Day tomorrow at our annual Seed Exchange at Brookside Gardens, Wheaton, MD. If you cannot make that, you can also join us the following Saturday at Green Spring Gardens, Fairfax County, VA. Here are the event details.
If you are not in our area, please consider hosting a localm in-person seed swap of your own. They are springing up all across the nation and we'd be happy for you to use the above logo to spread the word on your events.
