Invite all your friends, family members, distant acquaintances and fellow gardeners to donate a plant(s) and take a new plant(s) home. There is no charge at all – you simply exchange the old for the new. This way, everybody wins, including Mother Earth! See you there…in the parking lot!
To get ready, simply begin by gathering up your extra plants, starts, cuttings, bulbs, perennials, hothouse treasures, seeds, etc. and put them in containers right now. And, when you divide those varieties that are taking up too much space in your garden, put them in an old pot, instead of in the dump, and bring them to the IPC FREE Plant Exchange for someone who is just starting their own garden. This is our eleventh year of sharing our garden bounty, and the word is out, so we need more plants every year to make sure NOBODY goes home empty-handed. If you can’t bring something that grows, bring pots for plants, garden art, tools, or non-perishable food for the Food Bank. Don’t forget to invite your friends and family!
