One Seed Swap Down, Own More to Go for 2014

Thanks to all who came and joined us at Brookside Gardens yesterday for our Seed Exchange! (If you missed it, remember we have a second one THIS Saturday at Green Spring Gardens! See the details below.)

I was going to write a whole wrap-up, but one of our attendees, Terersa Speight who blogs at Cottage int he Court, already wrote up a marvelous recap. You can read it here: http://t.co/1lel7phxUK

Also, many attendees shared their photos from the event on Twitter and other social media using the hashtage #SeedSwapDay. 

Here are a few shares: https://twitter.com/search?src=typd&q=%23seedswapday
Don't miss the fantastic, hand-made origami seed packs!

I put up my own album of photos from yesterday at facebook.com/WashingtonGardenerMagazine -- included in that album is a gallery of folks who made their own name badges -- many used seed packets and seed-related materials. HOw creative!
