Just wanted to let you all know that the first Spring Rhea County Plant Swap will be held on June 2, 2007. It will be at Point Park in Dayton, TN which is about 30 minutes from Chattanooga and about 1 1/2 hours from Knoxville. It is also close to Pikeville, Athens, Decatur, Cleveland, Spring City, and sorta close to Rockwood and Crossville. Setup is at 9 am, swapping begins at 10 am and a potluck lunch at noon. We have a website up that is not completely finished yet so please bear with us the web address is www.freewebs.com/rheacountyplantswap If you need more info or directions my e-mail addy is LisasAvonPlace@aol.com please feel free to e-mail me anytime. Sorry for the late notice, this is my first time trying to host a swap and everything locally got hectic and to be honest I forgot I hadn't posted the info here. Most people here are not sure what a plant swap is and I would be thrilled to have some of the faithful GardenWeb swappers come helpo me introduce the locals to these awesome gardening events. Please come if you are able and if your not able please keep us in your thoughts and prayers that my first job at hosting one isn't a complete flop. Thanks in advance.

Hugs,
Lisa

Lisa, I am glad you are having one in the Chattanooga area. Good luck. You will learn as you progress...experience is the best teacher. I hope you have a good turnout.

I wish I could come. I still have Ginkgos, daylilies, cannas, and sedums that need homes, but there's a garden tour in Knoxville that day that I've been signed up for for monthes. Maybe I can catch a fall swap or next year's swap.

ditto... while there's no way I can make it/do it this June ... things might be more feasible for next Spring/'08 or perhaps even this Fall - I won't know until closer to those times. Just make sure you don't set them up where they conflict with the other "major" swaps in TN and you stand a much better chance at GW folks who "do" the TN swaps to be able to go to yours as well. I know that used to be "the gig" with horse shows I attended and/or judged at. As long as dates didn't conflict, we'd be on the road virtually every weekend with a "string" of shows. It was nice. :) And then the "season" would wrap up and we'd all recuperate hehe...

Oh my goodness! I just now saw this. I sure do wish I had seen it earlier so that I could have prepared some plants to bring over there and I would be there! I would LOVE to come, but I don't have anything ready to bring. I might just come over anyway just to check out what all ya'll are doing. What a great idea to have the swap near this area! I'll for sure get to the next one with plants in hand! Hope the swap is very successful.

I went. It was a nice turnout but we sure missed a few of you. Lisa plans to have another in the fall. I"ve already started thinking about new things to bring.
