- Listing Description:
Hello gardeners and plant swappers. Happy Spring and welcome to the 2019 New England Plant Swap.
The Swap is scheduled for June 1, 2019 at beautiful Adams Farm at 999 North Street in Walpole. Set up begins at 8 and there’ll be unlimited swapping between participants until approximately 9:30 when we begin the open swap in rounds (sometimes fondly called the plant grab). It’s an orderly, quasi controlled process, but things go FAST. So PLEASE arrive well before 9:30 for best availability. That being said, there are always many plants up for grabs for those who are just beginning with gardening and don’t have much to offer.
We encourage swappers to bring many and BIG plants to the swap, and we give priority picks to those who do. The more you bring, the more you can take. Plants must be potted. Please no bare root plants. Also gardening books, tools and décor are also welcome and are often a big hit. There’s one caveat: if your hardware is not selected by another member, you must take it with you when you leave. While we are able to compost leftover plants, we have no means to dispose of inorganic items.
The best swappers bring a cart or some way to schlepp plants to and from the swap. We sometimes have access to wagons, but access to them is limited.
So pot up your successes and leftovers and join us at the red barn at Adams Farm for a morning of fun, stories and general garden nirvana. The barn is covered; so it goes on rain or shine. There’s plenty of free parking. The event is open to all and is there is no charge. Even the coffee is free and your leashed dogs are welcome.
Over the years, the New England Plant Swap has evolved into a community of caring and sharing. It’s a morning of enjoying the plants that have thrived in Southern New England, meeting those who have helped make these plants thrive and are willing to share with others wanting to continue the tradition.
We look forward to seeing you—and our friends—at the Swap.
