Hancock Native Plant Swap April 1

Hello, Gardeners and future Gardeners!
 
This event is Sunday morning and we hope to see you there!
 
NATIVE PLANT SWAP
April 1st 8am-10:30am   EARLY!
Antonelli's Cheese Shop parking lot: 4220 Duval Street (across from Hyde Park Grill)
 
Mission: To make all yards in our/your neighborhood more beautiful and easier to maintain, while consuming less water...FOR FREE!
 
How It Works:
- Bring some baby plants that are crowding your yard or your parent's, sister-in-law's, and/or friend's yard  :)
- Check in - sign in and we'll help you jot some details about your plants.
- Pick out your free native baby plant.
- You will be given one ticket for each plant you brought.
- Go in and place your plants in the appropriate area (SUN, SHADE, etc.)
- Pick out one new plant for each of your tickets.
- We want everyone to take home a variety so please select a portion of the plants available in any one type...use your best judgment.

For your free plant you will be able to choose from: Artemisia, Old Fashioned Purple Iris, Texas Poinsettia, Blue Mist Flower, and Yarrow (while supplies last).
 
Help will be there: We will have all levels of gardening experience there, from weekend neighborhood gardeners to Habitat Stewards with native plant training to our resident expert, Lynn Hill, Master Naturalist.  They are eager to help with information and answering questions and LOVE to talk about our fabulous Texas plants.
