Annual Plant Swap

This years Plant Swap is May 12-14 in the café during normal business hours. Need to thin out your perennials or maybe have an empty space to fill? This is your opportunity to share or pick up something new. Just bring your plants in pots, boxes or bags. Please label the plants clearly. Plants can be dropped off anytime during the swap, but the earlier the better. If you are looking for plants come often because the selection is always changing. Every time you come, fill out a ticket to win a beautiful herb basket. No entry limit. New for this year, we are looking for seed donations for the new seed library that we are planning to open later this year.
