How Do I Organize a Seed Swap?

Tags: seeds, community

 Our very new community garden is doing its first ever seed swap. I'm in charge and would like some info on what to do and how to prepare. How are seeds displayed? How are they sorted out? How are they labeled? How are they taken home?  

Funny you should ask because I just posted an article about exactly that topic! I hope you find the information in How to Organize a Community Seed Swap helpful. And to learn much more about organic gardening, please check out our extensive gardening archive. It's absolutely chock-full of expert organic gardening advice. New gardeners might be especially interested in our "All About Growing" articles. More advanced gardeners should take a look at our "Garden Know-How" articles.
