We will have our annual exchange of native plants on May 2nd in the church parking lot.  There will also be a raffle for garden and nature-related items.

Items to be exchanged can be seeds, perennials, grasses and sedges, shrubs, trees or vines.  Plants brought for exchange must be native to the Eastern United States.  Cultivars of a native plant are acceptable.  Plants should be potted if dug up several weeks before the exchange. If they are dug on the day of the exchange, their roots can be kept moist in wet newspaper surrounded by a plastic bag. Each plant must be labeled.  All participants get to choose several plants to take home.

Early drop off will be in a marked area in the upper parking lot starting Wednesday, May 1st.

Participants who have no plants to offer can contribute a beverage or something to eat. This event is also a party and an opportunity to meet fellow gardeners. Participants may want to bring some food, wine or beer to share.

We charge a small fee for participating in the plant exchange since this is our only fundraiser. Wild Ones Members pay $5, non-members pay $8. Cash and checks only.
