Ok, y'all - i know you've been waiting to hear from John about the swap! BUT... he's too busy with the state fair, which is very short staffed, to host this year. So, at some of our regular's urging, i asked if he minded if i hosted this time, and he didn't at all. We are moving it from white deer to just around the corner at our community garden (which is free - John's always paid to have us at the shelter before!) The address is 550 Thompson Road at Thompson Road Park, and we are at the very back. We have picnic tables to eat at, higher tables to set plants on, and will set up some shelters to help with the sun and/or any inclement weather. There's no power - not that we ever used it at white deer. Port o' potties and plenty of parking. He said it'll most likely need to be the same deal for next fall.

We are going with Sept 30th. 1-4 PM, but feel free to come earlier to get your stuff out.

Same rules and set up as always. I'll see if i can even get the ringie dingie bell. :D

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.

You can see it's just about adjacent to where we usually meet. Instead of travelling down to Aversboro Road to get to White Deer Park, though, you turn off Timber Drive onto Thompson Road at the light in front of Timber Drive Elementary School. The road is short, it deadends and you really can't miss the park on the left. :) The address is 550 Thompson Road at Thompson Road Park, and we are at the very back.
