*Set-up will follow the usual plan, shared here for our new members and guests. We recommend digging plants or packaging bulbs/tubers/seeds by the night before the swap. Label all plants clearly and keep the area underneath the table for plants that you have selected during the swap and plan to take home. While setting up, enjoy some continental breakfast and start looking for plants you may want to swap. At 10:00, we will start the swap. Please only take one of the same plant per person, as others may want that plant.
Presentation Topics and Speakers:
Bromeliads Speaker: Karen Whorrall
Plant Propagation Speaker: Ed Paynter
Please bring a gently used or new garden-related item to share at the door prize table. It does not have to be fancy or store-bought, because we simply enjoy the door prize drawing fun!
New Membership Model and Swap Registration
Beginning in 2021, new members will pay a one time membership fee of $10.00. An annual fee is no longer required. The one-time membership fee is used to pay for the website, mailings, and miscellaneous club expenses. In addition to the one-time membership fee, we will continue to charge a separate fee for plant swaps to cover the costs of food and facility rental.
Members are encouraged to bring guests. However, guests coming for a second time are asked to join the club and pay the one-time member fee.
Members should register for the plant swap by clicking on the button at the top of the page. Two options are available for plant swap registration: 1) register online and pay at the plant swap, or 2) register online and pay online via PayPal.
Non-members may join by clicking the non-member button at the top of this page and have the option to pay for their membership via PayPal, by mailing a check, or paying at the door.
For additional information on the swap, you can access the full newsletter under the member area.
