FGS Plant Swap

Thursday, May 26, 6PM-7PM

Location: The Potting Shed

Dust those leaves and knock off that dirt because we are hosting a PLANT SWAP!

Want to change things up in your plant collection? Bring a plant (or two, or three…) to our plant swap, where everyone will take turns selecting a new plant for their collection.

Event fee is $5, which includes a mimosa OR a regular Sunset Slush! We’ll also open The Potting Shed for this event. Sip on a local beer or mimosa while you make new friends and freshen up your plant collection.

Please come prepared to share details with the group about caring for the plants you are offering up to swap.

Everyone must bring at least one plant to contribute to the swap! Please label each plant with at least its name; lighting and watering preferences are also encouraged.

PLANTS MUST BE DISEASE AND PEST FREE.

Waking April is an electro-pop band made up of a husband and wife duo. Bethany and Alex McKee are based in Raleigh, NC.
