Spring Plant Swap set May 16 in Pine River

The third annual Spring Plant Swap will occur from 2-7 p.m. Friday, May 16, at the Hunt Utilities Group Resilient Living Campus in Pine River. The free event will be held rain or shine.

A plant swap is an opportunity to trade things related to growing, such as seeds, perennials, annuals, natives, exotics (non-invasive), trees, shrubs, foodstuffs, books/magazines, pots, services, etc.

Anyone bringing items to swap should label or create signs, bring pots or packaging and instructions.

Ten-foot spaces will be provided, along with tables and chairs.

Prepare swap items in advance. Swapping tends to happen early. You need not bring swaps to attend.
