Plant Swap!

Join us Saturday, May 19 from 10 am - 12 pm for the library's spring Plant Swap. Bring a plant, take a plant! The swap is a fun and frugal way for beginners and experts alike to add diversity and interest to their garden. If you have an overabundance of a particular plant, dig up part of the plant, separate it, label it (if you know what it is), put it in a pot or plastic bag, and bring it to the swap to trade. Drop off begins at 9:30am, and the exchange begins at 10am.
