WANTED: Raleigh Swap Details
Here's the final details for the Raleigh 2007 Spring Swap
Saturday April 21st, 2007
Lake Crabtree Park
From 12 noon til dusk
Swap and Picnic
How to get there:
I-40 between Durham and Raleigh, exit #285 (same exit for RDU Airport, marked as Airport Road or Aviation Parkway)
Turn South away from the airport - coming from the East (Raleigh) exit on your right, turn left and cross over the highway. Coming from the West (Durham) exit on your right and turn right (airport and highway behind you).
Go maybe a half a mile (or less) and turn into the park on your left. It is the only thing on the left side of the road, the park runs along beside the highway. Big sign out front that says "Lake Crabtree County Park".
There is one main road through the park. All the restricted roads come from the left. All the public roads head to the right. You want the third road that heads to the right, it goes to the fishing pier, a playground and Whiteoak Shelter. Whiteoak Shelter is closer to the main road, there is another shelter down by the lake shore. There are many small parking lots in the area.
There is a small parking lot for the Whiteoak Shelter. Playgrounds and bathrooms are nearby.
There is a charity event there in the morning and the park does not open to the public until noon. I wouldn't show up right at noon either just to be safe.
General swap will start at 2:00pm. Special Trades can take place at any time preferrably in the parking lot. I will bring some extra folding tables so that we can place food out of the way of the plants. Snacking and drinking are encouraged throughout the swap. Sit and talk gardening after the swap. We have the space until dusk which is way late so there is no need to hurry up and get out.
I encourage everyone attending to freely trade plants before the actuall swap. If you have something special and missed out on the "Special Trades" go ahead and make deals. Anything left over can be added to the general swap. The core idea of this activity is to trade plants with fellow gardeners. The general swap is open to anyone regardless if they bring plants or not.
Can't wait to see everyone again!
