North and Central Alabama plant swap

catbird(z7 AL)March 8, 2011

Since AL is a tall state and it's hard for people from North AL to get to a swap in South AL and vice versa, we're planning two swaps now. The folks in the middle part of the state can go to either or both. Either group will welcome new swappers. New gardeners don't have to bring anything. Just come meet everyone and see how it all works. Most people bring lots of extra plants that they are happy to share with newbies to help them get started, so you'll probably go home with a trunk full of plants.

On prior threads, most of the North AL people who have responded have said that April 16 works best for them and that they'd like to meet at Guntersville. Please chime in as to whether that time and place work for you and whether you plan to attend so we can make some arrangements. We also need to start posting trade lists on the Exchange Page and post notices here when we do.

Guntersville is a lovely area and there are several delightful places to meet. We can eat at Wentzel's Oyster House (they do serve things besides oysters) or Top of the River and I assume there are other places around there. Who lives in that area and can tell us about that?

Apparently the "Central Alabama Swap" is going to be at Oak Mountain State Park on May 17. That's not too far South for our area and the date works for me. Since no one seems to be pushing for one at Guntersville, I think I'll go to the one at Oak Mountain. Maybe we can do Guntersville some other time.

So is the Guntersville swap off this year? If not I can give some suggestions for restaurants depending on where the swap will be held.
