Austin/San Antonio Spring Swap April 21


Hi Everyone,
Just one week until the Spring Swap on Saturday April 21.
Here is the usual swap info to remind everyone how it works and what to bring.
The swap usually starts at 9am sharp and we usually do door prizes and a potluck lunch around noon. It's usually all over by 1:30 or 2 depending on weather and how many people come. As for what to bring, the options are wide open. Plants of course, either divisions of your perennials, or cuttings you started or seeds you collected and labeled. Sometimes people bring whole plants they decided they didn't like anymore or didn't have room for. Also, if making new plants is not your thing, you can bring gardening related items, books, terra cotta pots, tools, etc... People are generally very generous and eager to make newbies feel welcome so there are no hard and fast rules about what you can bring. Also, most gardeners just don't want to take any of their own stuff back home so they are often not expecting an "even trade".
There is also a list of things you may find useful to bring:
camp chair or stool
card table (there are no tables provided at the Buda pavilion)
extra plant labels and marker
extra plastic pots - usually someone needs these
plastic bags for transporting goodies
plastic nursery trays for transporting goodies
Drinking water
rain jacket (for some reason our swap usually causes a shower!)
Also we do have a donation jar to help pay for the pavilion rental
so your donation will help make sure we can keep on swapping!
If you know what you are bringing you can list it here.
As far as food goes, bring what you want. We usually have a good variety.
See you at the Swap!

I don't think there is one in Austin but there is one in San Antonio , on October 14th 9am-11 am at Rogier's Park off on Fredericksburg road just south of 410. I drive down from Austin to it. It is a good swap. Great people there. Some drive down from Dallas and Bandera.
