The 2022 Raleigh Fall Swap will be held Saturday, September 24 at White Deer Park - Pine Shelter in Garner. The shelter is reserved from 1pm until 4pm. Swapping will begin around 2. Everything will be the same as in past swaps. We are limited to 50 participants. Everything is as it has been in the past except we are back at the Pine Shelter on the left side of the parking lot when you enter.
As in the past we have no rules, you are free to haul anything gardening related to the swap and give it away - this includes live plants, seeds and bulbs, cuttings, pottery, tools and equipment. One thing that sets our swap apart from others is that we do not require you to even bring plants in order to participate. We always have way more plants than people. If you feel guilty taking something for nothing you can always bring food for the potluck picnic.
Here is a map showing the town of Garner’s White Deer Park shelters:
An easy way to get there is to take the Beltline to exit #299 and turn South (away from downtown Raleigh). The road you are on is Hammond Road . Stay on this same road as it crosses Hwy 70, by now it has changed names to Timber Drive. Take Timber Drive all the way to Aversboro Street and turn Right (this intersection has a Wallgreens, a CVS and a Lowe’s Foods). There is a small city sign showing how to get to White Deer or Lake Benson Park. White Deer Park is on the right. There is a church on the opposite side of the street. If you see a big wooden sign for Lake Benson you have gone one short block too far. Once you enter the park take the first turn to the left and drive until you see the big parking lot. Our shelter (Pine) is on the left as you enter the parking lot and right up against the parking lot.
