Earth Day Community Plant Exchange
A community plant exchange is planned on Earth Day at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 22, by the Oak Grove Mennonite Church.
The exchange will be in the church parking lot at 7843 Smucker Road, just east of Smithville.
Bring well-labeled perennials, annuals, seeds, bulbs, house plants, garden tools, canning jars, gardening books and magazines, flower pots, landscaping rocks and materials, and outdoor furniture and decor. Take home items others brought. No cash exchanged.
This is an opportunity to share with others — and get something new yourself — while thinning your flower beds and organizing your garden shed. And it’s a way to encourage all to plant a garden to feed their families and beautify their surroundings.
Everyone can take some items home, even if they have brought nothing, and share gardening stories and lore.
