Fall Hancock Native Plant Swap - September 28th at dawn

Hello.  This weekend Mother's Cafe & Garden confirmed that we can have the Fall Hancock Native Plant Swap in their parking lot.

The swap will be from from dawn to 9:30am.

Bring native plants (please mark them with name and any helpful information).
Take home the same number of other people's plants.

This is the fourth swap and people from all over Austin are turning out.  
There is great participation from Central and North Central neighborhoods.
We also always find one or more new gardeners who we are able to set up with native plants.

If you have some native plants that are doing very well in your yard and reproducing everywhere, we need those plants at the swap. 
Please bring as many as you possibly can.  We can come help you get them into pots!

IMPORTANT WAYS YOU CAN HELP:

  • Be a Donor:  Contact me if you want to help the cause for native plants but have something else to do the day of the swap.  We can come to your house with all the supplies and very carefully pot up the
    plants you want to share with others.
  • Be a Digger: Volunteer to be available to dig up donor plants in your neighborhood.
  • Be a Promoter: Distribute flyers in your neighborhood to gardens that have lovely plants you'd like to see in other yards (flyers provided).

Get your baby natives ready!  

The swap is most successful when a lot of people participate, please tell your friends, family, acquaintances, and strangers about it!

Thank you!
