May Day Plant Swap

May 1 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Greetings spring beings! ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฑWe are so excited to be hosting our annual Spring Plant/ Seedling Swap again with friends at @poboxcollective! We had quite an abundant turn out last year. As always all plants are invited; fruit and vegetable seedlings, house plants, and native flowers and grasses… I think we will even have some free fruit and nut trees from @sowrecalcitrant! In addition to the plant swap @rogersparkfoodnotbombs will be sharing their weekly free meal and @poboxcollective will be hosting an art opening of Artist-In-Residence Jessica Mueller. Join us all for a beautiful May Day with food, friends, and free plants ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿฅฌ๐Ÿฅ–

SOME NOTES: If you are planning to being plants to swap we would greatly appreciate it if you brought them between 12-1pm so we can get them organized and labeled well.
We happily share all plants for free AND we will also gladly be accepting ca$h donations $$ to support the work of the library and our friends work at PO Box Collective.
**Also you donโ€™t have to bring plants in order to join in!
If you have any questions please feel free to email us at [email protected]
