MGACRA’s 7th annual Seed Swap on January 28, 2023 was a rousing success! Close to 200 people attended the seed swap with some coming from as far away as Montross and Hanover. An abundance of seeds were brought in from attendees which kept our seed packaging committee busy for most of the event. Seeds were grouped by categories of flowers, herbs, and vegetables and then again by specific variety. Most seed packets disappeared quickly. Herbs and vegetable varieties were especially popular and we are anticipating expanding our requests for seed donations as well as the seed give away area in the seed swap itself. Watch here on this website for upcoming videos and information showing how you can save seeds and package them to bring to next year’s seed swap. Not only were seeds swapped, but the items in our book/magazine and miscellaneous swap areas were well received and most items found a new home. Our two speakers shared information on quick fixes for disturbed soils and winter sowing and received high ratings from. attendees. Another popular area was the children’s activity area where young and older created fairy gardens to take home. Thank you to all who supported MGACRA’s 2023 Seed Swap! Join us next year for an expanded version on January 27, 2024!
