Our conversation today with Lynn Hoffman & Rochelle Dornatt, NSV Master Gardeners gave us details for several upcoming events hosted by the organization.

The 12th Annual Seed Exchange will take place on Saturday, January 28 from 10am - 2pm at the State Arboretum of Virginia at Blandy Experimental Farm located in Boyce, VA. If you’re a home garden seed saver or have some extra commercially grown seeds left from last year’s planting, bring them to the Seed Exchange at Blandy. Even if you don’t have seeds to share, you’re encouraged to participate. Gardeners are always happy to share their knowledge and harvest with others.

A wide variety of seeds will be available such as vegetables, herbs, perennials, annuals, bulbs and cuttings, vines, woody plants, commercially packaged seeds donated by growers, retailers, or fellow gardeners, plus trees & shrubs.

The event will also feature:

  • “Ask a Master Gardener” information table
  • Gardening book and magazine exchange 
  • Vendors with plants and other items for the gardener
  • Information stations and hands-on demonstrations
  • Activities for children

We also learned about the Indoor Plant Clinic happening on Saturday, February 4, 2023 at Bowman Library as well as upcoming events for kids as part of their Nature Surprises for Kids series. We also talked about the Gardening in the Valley Symposium happening on March 11, 2023 at Henkel Hall on the campus of Shenandoah University.
