Seedling/Plant Exchange

This little greenhouse has seen a lot. On Saturday it will be serving a new role. A revolving, on-going plant exchange. Need a plant, take one. Have a plant to share, leave one. There will be an outdoor table for the cool season starts and all warm season crops will be placed in the greenhouse. We ask that if you are dropping off plants, please label them with a water proof label. We will water and care for plants as they arrive. O'Hara will prime the plant collection. On Saturday there will be onion starts, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and maybe some cabbage. Thanks, Little Greenhouse!
