Join us for our first Community Plant Swap! with support from Lakeland Plant Swappers.
Gates Open at 8:30 am, and the first round of swapping begins promptly at 9 am.
How a plant swap works:
Plants and gardening items are placed in a designated location between 8:30 and 9 am. Depending on arrival time, attendees are divided into groups, and each group will be announced and have a specified amount of time to peruse the available plants.
From the Lakeland Plant Swappers: This is not a 1:1 swap! Bring what you can and are willing to share.
What to bring for the swap:
+ Garden-related items like plants, seeds, tools, and/or books
+ Label those plants and seeds, please
What NOT to bring for the swap:
- No chemicals
- No invasive plants, please
Types of plants that might be found to swap:
Orchids, Bromeliads, Tropical Plants, Aroids, Grasses, Flowering Trees, Native Plants, Succulents, Butterfly and Hummingbird Attractants, Herbs, Fruit Trees
This is not a plant sale, but we will have a few vendors on site with a LIMITED supply of plants.
