Library Seed Swaps

Calvert County is again planning a seed swap for Saturday, Jan. 23, at Calvert Library Prince Frederick from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Whether you saved seeds from your garden, have leftovers from seed packets or are looking for seeds, all are welcome to the second annual Calvert Seed Swap, which is part of the Garden Smarter series. Heirloom seeds especially welcome, but do not bring PVP seeds or seeds that are chemically treated. All seeds need to be divided and labeled with as much detail as you can.

Anne Arundel County Libraries also help patrons exchange seeds in January at the following events:

  • SoCoGrowSeed Swap Party, Jan. 13, 7-8:30 p.m. at Deale library. Bring clearly labeled seeds from 2013 or newer and also get seed-planting tips.
  • Seed Swap Saturday, Jan. 30, 10 a.m. at Crofton library. Bring seeds or come empty handed. Master Gardeners will be on hand to help with the swap.
