5th Annual Hancock Native Plant Swap: April 1st at Mother's Cafe

The Hancock neighborhood's plant swap is in its 5th year!  Thank you to all who have generously shared your favorite native plants with others in these five years!

On Saturday, April 1st, grab your coffee, pot up some of your best-performing baby plants and bring them to Mother's parking lot for an hour of sharing and gardening fun. Master Gardeners and Habitat Stewards attend and love to help you find plants that will work well in your yard. Wondering if a plant in your yard is native or not? Bring a sprig from it and one of the experts will be able to identify it for you. Don't have any natives? That's okay, nobody goes home empty-handed! A fun, lively event, but it doesn't last long, so come early!

Please help spread the word by Sharing this event and/or posting what you will be bringing: https://www.facebook.com/events/1854904631420293/

There are more pictures and videos showing what it's like to attend on the fb page: https://www.facebook.com/NativePlantSwap

Here's how it works: 

  • Pot up some transplants, cuttings, or bring seeds
  • Bring to swap and set them in the appropriate area: Sun, Shade, Part Sun/Shade, or Water
  • Look around for plants that you would love to have
  • Take as many home as you brought

The mission of the Hancock Native Plant Swap is to make all yards in our neighborhoods more beautiful and easier to maintain, while consuming less water...for free!
