About this Event

It may be getting cool outside, but it’s a balmy 80ᐤ in our 7,000 square foot butterfly pavilion, towering Birds of Paradise and luscious Fiddle- leaf Fig trees. Enjoy a night with your plant gang, fellow plant nerds, plant enthusiasts, plant-y peeps and green newbies celebrating all things green!!! Sip something old, or try something new-- plant inspired cocktails and drinks will be available to sample and purchase throughout the night.

Learn more about:

*Houseplant Care 101 with plant guru Julie Bare of PHS’s Meadowbrook Farms

*Making your own herb- infused spirits and fruity liqueurs with mixologist Daniel Eisenberg

*Plant pest management that is friendly to beneficial insects, with Director of Plant Care Asha El-Shabazz

Swap details:

*Bring as many healthy, pest-free bare root divisions, cuttings or potted indoor plants as you like. Seeds, gently-used tools, pots, and other plant-y decor are also welcome.

*To retain moisture, please bring cuttings in water or wrapped in damp towels or damp moss. Note that any plants brought in pots or containers will NOT be re-potted before they go home with their new owners.

*We will have tags on-site for you to label your plants with their names (Latin or common) and care instructions for their new owners.

*One for one trading is encouraged. Add to your collection or feed your new obsession!

No plants, no problem!

We’ll have a cool selection of plants for sale inspired by our tropical oasis!
