Come celebrate Earth Day at our first annual Plant Swap for Pollinators!
What’s the easiest way to get free plants for your yard or garden and help at-risk pollinators like honeybees, butterflies, native bees and birds? Come to our Plant Swap for Pollinators! Pot up any plants you need to divide and trade for the same number of plants from your friends’ and neighbor’s yards. Drop off plants any time between 8am-1pm – get one ticket per plant. Trade your tickets for other plants (0r donate tickets to those who are just getting their gardens started) 1-2pm. Remaining plants will be given away 2-3 pm. An organic section will be available – an important benefit to our pollinator friends! Speakers will help us learn how to help pollinators from noon-1pm and you can trade gardening tools, books and seeds too!
You’re welcome to bring any plants, we’re just focusing on plants that help pollinators. If you’re not familiar with what those may be check out these great resources:
