Metro Chicago -- DuPage County Plant Swap

jcsgreenthumb(6b)June 8, 2004

Many people have expressed an interest in having a plant swap in the metro Chicago area , so I would like to get a count of how many would be interested in having one in early September. If there are enough people, I am willing to organize one, as long as I have volunteers to help with set up, etc.

I am thinking of hosting it at Herrick Lake in the Wheaton area. There is hiking, boating and fishing there, as well as covered picnic areas and a concession stand.

LMK if you are interested.

Thanks!

GREAT idea, Jeanne! I'd love to participate...keep me in mind. Thanks so much for the e-mail! I live not too far from your proposed site, so depending on what dates you choose, I may be able to help out beforehand, too.

Hi,

The swap is on for September 11. I have set up a bulletin board with all the swap info. You can also post your wants/haves, etc. I couldn't get a picnic pavilion at Herrick so it will be held at the Blackwell Preserve, near West Chicago, instead.

Feel free to email me if you have questions.

I hope you can make it!

Last call... I have approximately 35 swapers registered and the weather forecast is for a clear day! Should be a lot of fun!

The link to our bulletin board is below. It contains all the info you'll need.

Hope to see you there!
