For our January 2017 Washington Gardener Reader Contest, we are giving away two passes to either of the Washington Gardener Seed Exchanges (prize value $40).
The 12th Annual Washington Gardener Seed Exchanges, hosted by Washington Gardener Magazine, take place on January 28, 2017, at the Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, MD, and on February 4, 2017, at Green Spring Gardens in Fairfax, VA. You have a choice of which side of the DC Beltway you want to visit! Seed Exchange attendees trade seeds, exchange planting tips, hear expert speakers, and collect goody bags full of gardening treats. The event also includes such “green” features as the garden book and catalog swap. Everyone will leave with a bag full of seeds and loads of gardening inspiration for the upcoming growing season!
To enter to win the Seed Exchange Passes, send an email to WashingtonGardener@rcn.com by 5:00pm on Wednesday, January 25, with “Seed Swap” in the subject line and in the body of the email. Tell us your favorite story in the January 2017 issue of Washington Gardener Magazine and why. Please also include your full name and mailing address. The pass winners will be announced and notified on Thursday, January 26.
Congratulations to our January 2017 Washington Gardener Reader Contest winner: Faith Hood!
