2013-14 HPS Seed Exchange Workshops                                                             

Join us for the cleaning and packaging workshops at the Henry Foundation in Gladwyne, PA, held 10:002:30 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays starting January 21 and continuing into early February. To schedule your workshop volunteer services, please contact our friendly volunteer coordinator Polly Garnett,, 610-695-9135.     

In addition to learning at least one new thing about seeds and propagation, you can renew old friendships, hear the latest news, describe the progress in your own garden, and review the great gardens that you had the opportunity to visit in the past year. Bring a lunch for yourself and maybe a snack to share. Coffee, tea, and water are provided.

2013-14 HPS Seed Exchange Snow Cancellation Notification

For those without access to a computer, call 215-483-2650, for the up-to-date information.
