Community Houseplant/ Perennial Swap

Bring some houseplants and heirloom seeds**/cuttings/roots/bulbs from your garden to share with others. Connect with other gardeners, try something new, share some of your tried & true favourites, and save money! Each participant receives up to 5 tokens for seeds/plants brought. Any leftover items will be available at the end of the swap for anyone, including new gardeners and plant lovers who have nothing to trade but would like to connect with local community. So, bring some extra items to the swap!

Packaging

The library will have envelopes at the event, but you are welcome to use your own packaging. Include enough seeds/bulbs in each packet or a large enough cutting to ensure a good start. Please label everything you bring with you and if possible, include the variety, basic growing information, original packaging or a few pictures.

 

**NOTE: If you are bringing saved seeds, they should only be from heirloom varieties. While there are many wonderful hybrid plants out there, they simply will not grow true from seed you saved. To ensure viability of saved seeds, please bring seeds that are no more than 2 years old.
