Kathy Jentz, the editor and publisher of the Washington Garden Magazine , started this day on January 26th, 2006. While it’s a great idea, it’s not really new however. Seeds have been used forever as barter items. You give me the seeds I need and I’ll give you the seeds you need to grow more, and better, product to sell on the market. Today seeds are more readily available than in the past but sometimes there are some you might like to have that you don’t. So today look for those places you can swap seeds you have for those you might want and if you can’t find one… start your own seed swap meetup.
How to celebrate – Save those seeds you think are useless to you. Make a list of those things you’d like to grow if you can get the seeds. Start your own garden.
