Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Thank you for doing this. I've been working on one off and on for a while now, but it never seems to get finished.

Here in the Mid-Atlantic group, we're using the swap tool to conduct in-person plant swaps! Instead of packets of seeds, we list individual plants and how many we have available.

Instead of mailing packets of seeds back and forth, we all meet at a volunteer host's place. We swap plants, stories, tips and even have a pot-luck lunch/dinner. Not only do we get that 'instant gratification' of having the plant, but it allows us to put faces to screen names.

Attendance varies and is usually based on who live in the area of the host home, or doesn't mind the drive.
