There are pavilions for protection in case of rain and plenty of parking space at Oak Island. There will also be a special area in the pavilion for anyone bringing a food item to exchange for a plant.
Come and swap plants and try something new and different in your garden!
WHEN: Saturday, May 13th at 9:45am
WHERE: Oak Island Village Park, Waterloo
Bring your houseplants, flowers, vegetables, bulbs, and herbs to trade with other gardeners. Please label each plant.
The swap will start at 10AM (be there by 9:45AM) and go until all plants are swapped. Bring as many plants as you’d like. For every plant you bring, you’ll be able to swap for another plant.
Not already a gardener but would love to have a new plant? Just bring a non-perishable food item for the local pantries and the Master Gardeners will give you a plant in exchange!
Don’t know which plant might be best for your location and soil? Join us for a chance to ask experienced Master Gardeners about gardening, planting, plant choice or anything else yard or garden related while you’re at the plant swap.
If you would like to donate your plants to the swap, you may bring them to the office May 11th or 12th or to Oak Island the morning of the swap. The event is FREE, but donations to offset costs would be greatly appreciated!
