Thanks for your seed swap party idea. Wish I had of read about yesterday to suggest at our annual Volunteer meeting today for our local botanical garden. We will have maybe 2 plant sales this year and will use many ideas shared and a Seed Swap would be greatly appreciated. May your 2009 be "More" than just fine!

Oh, I hope you do get a Seed Swap organized! If you do one that's open to the public (not just to your volunteers), you might want to consider some sort of "chit" system where incoming seeds are given 1, 2, or 3 chits (use any sort of marker, like bottle caps, etc) according to their condition and type (a newer pack with harder-to-find hybrid seeds might get 3 chits, while an older pack of Straight 8 cukes would only get 1. Then people use the "coin" from their donated seeds to shop the swap. Would that work? You'll have to let us know! :-)
