Fauquier Seed Swap 2015

John Barton Payne Building...... 11am - 1pm
2 Courthouse Square, Warrenton, VA
Bring your seeds! Bring your friends! Go home with your friends seeds!
This is a FREE community event for those who have an interest in gardening.
There will be seeds (lots!). There will be gardeners. There will be sweets provided by Haute Cakes Pastry Shop and Great Harvest Warrenton. There may even be door prizes!

WHAT
A seed swap is exactly what it sounds like: a chance to swap your extra flower,
vegetable or herb seeds with other gardeners.

WHY
Because maybe you have too many tomato seeds, and not enough lettuce seeds.
Because you want to try a new variety. Because you have extra, and want to share.
Because it will be fun.

WHO
Anyone who has seeds or wants seeds. Expert gardeners. Beginner gardeners.
Aspiring gardeners. Seed-savers. You.

HOW
It's really pretty easy...
> Bring any extra seeds that are no more than two or three years old.
> Store-bought, mail-ordered or home-saved; all seeds are welcome.
> If you are bringing seeds you saved yourself, please be sure they are from
non-hybrid plants, and were saved properly.
> Please repackage large quantities of seeds into smaller envelopes or plastic baggies.
Packets of 10-30 seeds are plenty for most plants and gardens.
> Please label all seed packets with the variety name, year and source. Thank you!
> If you don’t have any seeds to swap, we still hope you will come. There should be
plenty of seed to share with everyone.

Please RSVP!
