7th Annual UU Native Plant Swap and Sale May 9th

The 7th annual UU Native Plant Swap and Sale will be help this Saturday, May 9th from 9-2 at the UU Center on the corner of Liebig and Pomona Rds. This event just gets better with age like wine. Native plant enthusiasts bring their extra "volunteer" native plants to exchange for others. Here's how it works: the first two plants cover the price of admission, then for each additional plant you get a ticket to turn in for another. You go about the tables, adding plants to your tray. Then go to the checkout and "pay" for the plants with your tickets. There is a limit of ten tickets per person, but you can also buy additional plants from the tables. I recommend bringing 12 plants so you can get 10 tickets.

Also I have a table there with my plants for sale as a fundraiser I do each year for the congregation. Plants at my table are $4.75 each including tax. With any purchase of 5 or more plants, you get a free packet of Common Milkweed seeds.

Here is a list of what I will be bringing:

Blue Vervain                                                    
Swamp Milkweed (limited)
Orange Coneflower
Purple Coneflower

Seashore Mallow
Seaside Goldenrod 
Prickly Pear
Little Bluestem
Switch Grass
Blue Eyed Grass
Sticky Catchfly
Creeping Phlox
Wild Stonecrop

As always advice is free, and myself, Jesse and Barbara are always happy to give it. So come on out and support this great cause. Pick up something for Mother's Day. Proceeds go to the center, a beautiful GREEN building. You can also see the native plant gardens on the site, maintained by members of the congregation. Hope to see you there.
