Bulb, Plant and Seed Swap

Saturday, October 21, 10 AM – Noon • Edgebrook Branch Library, 2nd Floor Community Room

Bring Something-Take Something

Do you love to garden and hate to waste? There are so many plant choices, but often not enough space. Consider swapping those extra bulbs, plants and seeds.

Seeds can be dropped off beginning Oct 16 at the Edgebrook library. All bulbs and plants must be divided prior to the swap and dropped off the morning of the program.

Do you have ten trowels too many or could you really use a bulb planter?

Please donate your gently used garden tools, beginning Oct 16, and visit the Bulb, Plant and Seed Swap to pick up a new-to-you tool to complete your fall garden project.

The bulb, plant and seed swap is a co-production of the Edgebrook Branch Library and the Edgebrook Community Association.
