WANTED: Your attendance at our plant swap June 17
You are invited to our
Plant and Seed Swap
at the Ecovillage Training Center
on The Farm in Summertown, TN
June 17th 2006 from 1-3 pm
Bring your favorite, unusual, useful, or extra plants and seeds and trade with your neighbors.
We are working to increase the diversity and food production of our educational nonprofit site. We are especially looking for perennial food plants including but not limited to Jerusalem Artichoke, small fruit or nut trees, bushes, or vines and what ever you find is producing well for you in the area. We also need herbs including but not limited to creeping thyme, borage, and yarrow and perennial flowers that will attract beneficial insects to our organic garden and add beauty to the area. Donations of plants would be greatly appreciated but are not at all necessary to attend.
We have to trade anti-mosquito plants, spiderwort, iris, oregano, mint, many varieties of bamboo and more. Who knows what your neighbors may bring? Come find out, get some new plants, socialize with your neighbors, find out what ETC is all about, and join us for an afternoon of fun.
Tours of the Training center will be available.
