Is this still on or has the location moved? I'm confused if you can't tell.

it seems to me the two people hosting this event had a falling out and now they're both planning a swap for the same day. I don't want to get into the middle of something so I won't be coming after all.

Yes, Mao tse mom you are correct, almost. Kelly and I could not agree on our goals for a swap. We met through the gardenweb and spoke a few times. I got permission to hold the swap with the intent to have a free event,open to the community. We will sell sandwiches and drinks as a fund raiser for the up keep of our 6 acres of grounds. This is a plant swap no plant sells allowed. If you to come to either or neither it is up to you. All I personally am doing is giving away plants to anyone that wants them. I am sure there are others out there that hate to just toss healthy plant into the composte. If you feel this way too, bring them to a swap. Pam
