Virginia Cooperative Extension is again offering free seeds this year to Alexandria and Arlington gardeners. The seeds are available on a first come, first serve basis at our office in the Fairlington Community Center and are limited to five (5) packets per person. Please record what you take on our intake form located in the office. Some plant clinics will also have seeds available. We encourage you to use all the seeds you take or share them with neighbors. We hope that you will also consider sharing excess produce with your local food bank.
