Come join your fellow plant lovers for a plant swap! Bring any extra garden perennials and annuals, and any indoor houseplants you’d like to trade or give away, to the Sustainability Academy athletic field and take home new plants for your home and garden. There is a large outdoor tent so the event will be held rain or shine, unless there is extreme weather.

Swap Rules:
  • Please do not bring any invasive plants. If you aren’t sure if your plants are invasive, you can look them up here: https://www.vtinvasives.org/
  • To reduce the spread of invasive jumping worms (Amynthas agrestis) please bring plants you have dug up with as little soil as possible. We’ll have buckets of water on site for rinsing off roots.
  • Label your plants to the best of your knowledge, including common name, botanical name, flower color, light requirements, and anything else you’d like someone to know about their care. If you don’t know the name of your plant, feel free to bring it anyway along with a photo or description of what it looks like in flower if it’s not in flower at the moment, and we’ll try to help ID it.
  • We expect to have some plants that will not have takers, so you are welcome to come if you don’t have anything to swap and bring home up to 3 plants. We ask that you wait until after 11:30am to come by if you don’t have plants to swap.
  • We will have a few extra pots and boxes, but it’s a good idea to bring your own pots, boxes, and bags to transport your new plants home.
  • If you would are not able to attend the swap but have plants you’d like to donate, we will be accepting plants on Friday, June 3th and Saturday, June 4th. Email Laura Hale to make arrangements at ONEGoodDeedFundBTV@gmail .com or call or text (802) 448-0512‬
Location:
