National Seed Swap Day

Date When Celebrated : Last Saturday in January

The holidays are over, and things have certainly slowed down. The snow is piling up outside. Somewhere out there, your garden is under inches, if not feet of snow. Spring is so, so far away. What's a gardener to get excited about!?

Towards the end of January, the last Saturday to be exact, is a huge, let's call it holiday, for gardeners suffering from no dirt under the finger nails withdrawal. It's National Seed Swap Day!

People have been swapping and trading seeds, since man, or woman, first tilled the soil of this planet. Centuries ago, seeds and even flower bulbs have been used as a form of currency or to barter.

On National Seed Swap Day, garden groups and organizations, hold a seed swap for their members. It allows them to trade rare, uncommon, unique and heirloom seeds. Garden hobbyists enjoy the challenge of growing something they haven't grown before. So, this is both a fun and valuable event.

On National Seed Swap Day, make plans to bring some seeds to swap to your local garden club. If you don't belong to a group or club, join or start one. You'll be glad you did!

Participate in National Seed Swap Day, and spring will not seem so far away.

History and Origin of National Seed Swap Day

Kathy Jentz, Editor and Publisher of the Washington Garden Magazine created the 1st annual Washington Garden Magazine Seed Exchange on January 26, 2006.

Note: Some sites have posted the wrong date for this special January day. According to the creator of this day, it is always on the last Saturday of the month.

There is no evidence to suggest that this is truly a "National" day, which requires an act of congress. and/or a presidential proclamation.
