Gardeners of Wake County

January 19th Club Meeting

  Annual Seed Exchange - The long-awaited January GWC meeting will feature our annual SEED SWAP. You need not bring seeds as our many members will have extra to share with everyone. Seeds should be identified and placed in their designated locations: veggies, flowers, bushes, trees, etc. They may be in individual baggies or containers to promote sharing. Feel free to bring your own empty bags or use the packaging bags and pens provided by members. The event will also have over 200 Mars seedless grape cuttings to plant and watch grow into a hearty vine. A short demo about mini-greenhouses assembled from recycled materials will also be presented.
