Upcoming Workshops

Annual Seed Exchange

January 26, 2019, January 26, 2019 10:00 am - 02:00 pm
Location: Blandy Experimental Farm, Blandy Farm Lane, Boyce, Virginia

Join our partners at Blandy Experimental Farm for their 8th annual seed swap and information exchange.

If you’re a home garden seed saver or have some extra commercially grown seeds left from last year’s planting, bring them to the Blandy Seed Exchange. Even if you don’t have seeds to share, you’re encouraged to participate. Gardeners are always happy to share their knowledge and harvest with others. We just ask that you exercise restraint (5–10 packets) so everyone can get some seeds to take home.

This event is free and open to the public.

Types of Seeds Typically on Hand

  • Vegetables
  • Herbs
  • Perennials
  • Annuals
  • Bulbs (yes, we know these are not “seeds”)
  • Vines
  • Woody Plants
  • Commercially packaged seeds donated by growers, retailers, or fellow gardeners

Other Activities at the Seed Exchange

  • Speakers on plant propagation topics
  • “Ask a Master Gardener”
  • Door prizes
  • Book and magazine exchange (unlike the seeds, we ask that you swap a gently used book or magazine to replace those you select)
  • Vendors with plants and other items for the gardener
  • Book signings
  • Refreshments
