    I'm new to seed exchanging -- if I bring some seeds to exchange, what is the best way to package them? Do they need to be in separate bags/containers? Labeled? Quantity? Thanks.

      Seed exchanges I've been to seem to less formal than you may be thinking. There are some people who pre-package seeds and monitor their exchanges ((I'll give you 4 of these for 2 of those). Some people just take their seeds and put them on the table with vague labels (squash). I think the way that makes most sense for me is to take the seeds in bulk with a "good description" (Orange indeterminate heirloom tomato sourced from Ohio, please take 5 per person), take some small bags (craft shops for plastic or Staples etc. for coin envelopes) or if your handy­ and take a sharpie to label the envelopes. This way you won't have spent a lot of resources packaging seeds that weren't wanted. There are ALWAYS seed left over at these events. I usually take seeds I've saved myself of plants I am excited about. I don't expect to come away with anything but often find things odd or new that I take.

      Thanks, Ray. The bulk idea with description makes sense.

    Have already committed to something else, wish I could be here for this. Looks like it will be a great event.
