3rd Annual Pleasant Valley Plant Swap
17625 S.E. Foster Rd. Gresham, OR 97080
Saturday May 14, 2016
10:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon

Rain or shine, gardeners gather to share and exchange plants and knowledge with all. The Plant Swap is hosted at Pleasant Valley Grade School. Then main parking lot is on Richey Road just north of Foster. The site offers parking, and a small breezeway area with restrooms.

Contact: Duane Werner, cell phone: 503-784-4528
Or email at duane_werner@frontier.com

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS: NO SALES, Only exchanges and freebies, please. Tailgating Encouraged. Bring your plants from Propagation; grown from seeds, shovel pruned, reseeded plants, or extras from a large nursery purchase. Size doesn’t matter. The format for the trade is like a tailgate party. Traders exchange expert gardening information as well as plant materials. In two hours all the deals are sealed. We have plenty of parking. Label your plants with botanical and common names, color, height, width, etc. if possible. Pictures are also great.

FREE STUFF: The last half hour (11:30–12:00) you MAY be able to pick up some free plants from gardeners that are willing to give it away. Many gardeners generously share plants from the abundance of their gardens. This is an excellent way to begin your garden and an excellent way to thin out that giant patch of Shasta Daisies, etc.

WHAT IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO TRADE: Cookies and chocolate work like money at the Plant Swap!

Rain or shine, gardeners gather to share and exchange
plants and knowledge with all.

Sounds like a fun event, wish I could make the trip down. But alas... Enjoy yourself and best of luck with your trades.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

Hi Alisa,
Glad you had a good time! I think everyone who came enjoys it. Be ready for next year about the same time.
