HAVE: Berea Plant Swap -- June 11, 2011 (Berea, Kentucky)

Hello All!

The Berea Plant Swap (2nd Annual) will take place on June 11, 2011, at my house. Event will start at 10am and a putluck lunch will commence at noon. Veteran and newbie traders welcome; if you do not have plants or other garden things to swap, bring food and take some plants. There is always enough to go around.

Post here that you are attending and I will send you directions to the swap.

Follow the link below to another thread where you can pre-arrange special trades.

If you will be attending, make sure that you set up your member pages and fill in your Have and Want lists. Use the link below for help with that.

This helps folks to know what to bring. (When faced with needing to choose which things to dig up, a veteran will cruise the newbies' lists and notice what things seem to be more popular on the wants lists and will prioritize digging those that are wanted instead of those most folks already have.)

Generally, we just bring plants and swap away! No need to pre-arrange -- you can just show up with plants. (The link above is just in case folks want to do specific trading for certain extra special plants.)

Generally, just come and have fun!

Note -- this swap was run as a "local" swap (no listing online here) last year. Coworkers, neighbors, and local Berea people came. This year I decided to list here, so no worries if there aren't many posts here --- there will still be swapping going on with a bunch on non-Gardenweb people.

Don't be shy or hesitant about posting :)
