Plant Exchange in Syracuse Area

adina72(z5 CNY)February 23, 2006

Just wondering if anyone is planning a plant trade in the Syracuse area. I don't really have the room to host one, but I may have lots to trade if my wintersowing takes off.

I did one 2 years ago. It was a lot of fun, I got a lot of interesting plants from it. It was also quite a bit of work. I'd be willing to help someone run one, on their property or mine, would rather work with someone than do it all myself. It rained cats-and-dogs the day we did it, and was chilly, but we set up food, etc in garage, and DH ran a heater in there, and we shared umbrellas and made dashes out into the yard to pick plants. We all brought things, set them up, and then round-robined to pick things we wanted. A few people did specific exchanges, set up prior, as well, but I think that the group I had, almost all of whom were new to exchanges, liked being able to pick from everything rather than some things being unavailable to them.

It really was a lot of fun, and I would enjoy doing it again. I'm in Chittenango. Here is a link to a few pictures from the day, and if you go up a link you'll see my website, with some pics of my gardens. Cheers!

I'd be willing to help plan one (though I've never done it before). I'd love to be able to host one, but our place is so small and we don't have a garage for a back up. I am in the Pennellville area, 5 miles north of Great Northern Mall in Clay off County Route 10. If you could let me know what would be involved in hosting one or helping to host one, I'd appreciate it. I assume June is a good month to have it? If anyone is interested, feel free to e-mail me privately also.

I haven't seen anyone post one yet, but it's still early. I've been checking the exchange page every week (I believe that is where it will be posted). If you are not sure where the exchange page is, look towards the top of the page where it says "Messages". Just below that is a line that says "On Topic Discussions". To the right of that is a link to "Exchanges". I'll also post a direct link below.
