Event Schedule:

2:00-2:55 Budget Gardening for Beginners :

3:05-4:00: Growing Vegetables in Containers and Raised Beds

4:10 Seed / Plant Swap will begin (While you may attend just the plant swap, the room will not open until after the classes are over)

How the seed and plant swap will work:

  • The idea is to share plants and seeds with each other, and to help those who are new to gardening acquire seeds and plants to get started.
  • Bring in seeds from last year that were left over, seeds you ordered this year that you have too many of, seeds you collected from you garden or the wild
  • Bring plants that can be divided (or are already divided), cuttings, live stakes, scion wood, houseplants, bulbs, rhizomes, any part that can be shared
  • We will have envelopes, zip locks, bags and such to carry things home in as well as tape and pens for labelling. Feel free to bring anything with you that will help in taking home material.
  • If it is not obvious what the seed, plant, or plant part you are sharing does or looks like please write a description or bring a picture if you have it.

New This Year:

Supply Sharing Area:   bring any unwanted items someone might want that are related to gardening. Pots, tools, seed starting supplies, stakes, and any other useful supplies. This area will be outdoors in the parking lot near the dumpster for easy unloading. Anything left there at the end will be donated, recycled, or thrown away.

Pruner / Loper sharpening station: Bring your dull tools and we will have someone there to help show you how to sharpen and care for your tools.

Perennial division station : We will show you how to divide from the garden and we will give away what we divide.
