Thursday, May 6, at 6 (!) pm, St. Michael’s Church, 2025 Bellefonte Drive, Lexington

Native Plant Exchange

The exchange is open to Wild Ones members and the general public. Participants are encouraged to  bring their surplus plants in pots or, if dug up on or near the day of the exchange, wrapped in moist newspaper and plastic. All plants must be labeled and they must be native to eastern North America. Cultivars of native plants are accepted.

Bringing a snack food or a beverage to share instead of plants is acceptable. All participants get to choose multiple plants to take home.

We will set up the exchange in the upper parking lot of the church to have ample room for spreading out, and we will follow instructions about face coverings as they seem appropriate at that time.

We are very much hoping to capture the spirit of this annual event as we remember it from the past: a chance to see old friends and meet new nature enthusiasts over food and drink; opportunities for sociability and networking; and of course getting free plants for the new gardening season.

The plant exchange is also our chapter’s main fund raiser and there is a fee for participants: chapter members: $5, non-members: $7.

In addition, there will be a raffle of garden and nature related items, including gift certificates from local garden centers, yard art, books, guided hikes for your group of friends and more.  The list keeps growing.   Not to be missed!
