How it works: No sales, just exchanges and freebies, please.
Tailgating Encouraged. The format for the trade is like a tailgate party. Traders exchange expert gardening information as well as plant materials. In two hours all the deals are sealed. We have plenty of new parking.
Free Stuff. Many gardeners generously share plants from the abundance of their gardensÃ¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½"An excellent way to begin your garden. Also an excellent way to thin out that giant patch of shasta daisies, etc. There is always a pile of plants free for the sharing at the swap.
What if I have nothing to trade? Cookies and chocolate work like money at the Green Elephant!
