What better way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo than by joining DC State Fair at our third annual seedling swap!
We’ll be out at the Center for Green Urbanism from 2 to 4 PM on Sunday, May 5, with dozens of DC-area gardeners to share seedlings, gardening tips, demonstrations, and more to kick off the summer planting season.
Be sure to show up on time to get your chance to walk home with the seedlings you want, and plan on spending the afternoon learning about gardening in DC.
If you don’t have any seedlings to share yet, there’s still time: Check here for a quick run-through of what you can start now to share in one month. But if you end up without seedlings to share at the swap, come by anyway, we’ll have some for you. So come by, learn about gardening in DC from area gardeners, and take some seedlings home to start your garden this summer!
And if you’re on Twitter, use the hashtag #seedlingswap to share what you’re growing for the Swap and how the seedlings you get at the Swap grow!
