Hello Mary, Simpson UMW Church is having a Plant Swap May 26 Th. I would like to start announcing this as early as posable. It is a community event for the back yard gardener.
Everyone interested in swapping starts from their garden with other gardeners, is asked to bring well rooted potted plants. They should be marked with name and growing needs.
It is a free event.
Example If a person brings in 15 plants they can take home 15 plants. Bring in 5. Take home 5.
the earlier they pot up their exchanges the better.
