ArrowCharlotte, NC Spring 2014 Plant Swap

Marion Diehl Park
2219 Tyvola Road, Charlotte, NC 28210

Charlotte, NC Spring Plant Swap 2014
SUNDAY, May 4, 2pm, rain or shine!

At the Marion Diehl park shelter. The park is connected to Queens University Sports Complex, and you can turn into the park at the Queen's entrance, or the Marion Diehl entrance. Incidentally, the worlds largest standing lion statue is at the Queens Complex. "Rex" is 15 feet tall.

For first time swappers - we don't care if you have weeds or high dollar orchids. If you have plants to give away and want them to go to good homes, this is the place to be. We trade anything and everything. If you don't have much, don't worry - we don't have rules about that either. If you don't have plants, bring food. Hopefully everyone will go home with more than they brought! Other gardening stuff is also welcome- pots, books, bulbs, cuttings, magazines, potting soil, tools, statues, etc.
Please label your plants. Something simple like "yellow daylilies" or "cactus houseplant" or "shade ground cover". This will make it easier to know where to plant the new plants we take home.

How it works: You show up early and place your plants in with all the other plants. You find a spot away from the shelter where you can stash the plants you grab during the swap. I will stand up and welcome everyone to the swap and ring a bell. You get to grab ONE plant and take it to your stash zone. We do this two or three times before we change it to TWO plants per ring and then THREE plants and finally we have a free-for-all where the leftovers can be claimed by anyone.

After the swapping is over, we'll sit down to enjoy a potluck snack with our new friends, so please bring a dish (finger foods) to share along with your plants. In lieu of a dish, you could bring paper plates, napkins, cups, ice, etc. Also, if you are inclined, you can leave a small donation toward the renting of the shelter.

Questions, contact
