Spring Perennial Exchange!

This year's spring perennial exchange is Saturday, May 1 at the Original Sub Shop.

All gardeners are invited to drop off plants to share and barter with starting at 8:30am in the parking lot.

A community garden workshop by the manager of Toledo GROWs will be held inside the Sub Shop @ 9:15.

The exchange runs from 10am - 11:30am.

Plant swaps like these are found throughout the world.

For the past six years this Original Sub Shop/Toledo GROWs co-sponsored event has brought local gardeners together to celebrate, share and learn about plants. People bring labeled plants and gardening paraphernalia and receive tickets they exchange for other items. Everyone, even new gardeners with nothing to share, will receive tickets.

At previous exchanges, young trees, shrubs, bulbs, grasses, ground covers, flowers of all kinds, vegetable starts, fencing, composted horse manure, books, garden art, and rocks have been available.

Stay tuned in the future for information on the fall plant exchange. . .
