MCMG Plant Swap Saturday, June 3rd

Join us for the fun from 9:30 am till 10:30.

“Swap-ortunity" time will be here before you know it! Despite the freezing weather, signs of
spring are peeking out, and high garden season will be here before we know it. If you are getting
out your seed packets, why not plant a few extra seedlings of your favorite flower, herb, or veggie
to share at our annual Spring Plant, Seedling, and Seed Swap on Saturday, June 3rd, at the Learning
Gardens Laboratory (6801 SE 60th Avenue).

So plan ahead…sow, dig, divide, and bring those extra plants to the swap! “Swap-ortunities" will abound! Find a new favorite to replace the one that didn’t make it through the storm.

More details to follow.
