Event description

Description

Love browsing through plant pics on Instagram? Obsessed with arranging your plant babies in just the right way? Or just looking to shake up your plant collection or yard for summer? We got you. Bring 1–3 plants or extra gardening accessories and swap them for something new! Sip a beer (or 3 — we won’t judge) in Forest City Brewery’s outdoor Beer Garden (weather-permitting) or Beer Hall while mingling with other plant fanatics and shopping for new additions for your own urban jungle from our vendors. Have a pot that needs a drainage hole? Bring it along - we'll have volunteers drilling holes for ya! All proceeds will benefit a non-profit promoting urban planting. Don’t forget your raffle tickets for your chance to win some envy-inducing plants (TBA)!

-----------------------------

SWAP RULES

1.) ALL PLANTS MUST BE - Happy, Healthy, & Pest FREE
2.)Please don’t water them immediately before the event! It makes the pots heavier and increases the chances of them leaking and making a mess in someone’s car.
3.) Everyone values already-rooted plants over fresh cuttings. It’s a good idea to start rooting your cuttings ASAP.
4.) Please clean any gardening tools & supplies. If trading nursery pots please bag them (up to 20 per bag).
5.) You are only to swap 1 for 1 per your ticket color.
6.) Must be present for raffle to win.

3 SWAP CATEGORIES

INDOOR
(1 green ticket per plant - MAX 3 PLANTS)
Tropical - Cacti - Exotic
Please bring cool, unique plants you would actually want to receive at the swap. Not just something you picked up from the discount aisle at Home Depot or a plant you cut right before. We want to make sure everyone goes home with a fair trade and something cool AF! Can be full plants or rooted cuttings (please combine 3 cuttings for trailing plants). They can be potted or bare root. Cuttings MUST be rooted. Please wrap the bare roots with a wet paper towel and put inside a plastic bag. EVERYTHING brought must have an ID. Need help IDing your plant? Get there early and we can help. Plants will be reviewed for identification, pests or other issues, and to ensure they have rooted before tickets are issued.

OUTDOOR
(1 Red ticket per plant - MAX 3 PLANTS)
Annuals - Perennials - Veggies
If you are like us, everything outside of our homes needs to be cut back. Grow too many tomato plants this year? Bring them and swap! Please bring all plants in nursery pots or boxes. If it is larger, remove most of the dirt so it doesn’t weigh a million pounds.

GARDEN TOOLS & SUPPLIES
(1 Yellow ticket per Tool or Supply- MAX 2)
Everything must be cleaned thoroughly. Ceramic & terracotta pots, shovels, edger, rakes, spades, trowels, hoes, pruning shears, wheelbarrow, gardening carts, bags of nursery pots (20 per bag), watering cans, soil scoops, etc.

- NO electric lawn equipment-

SOIL BAR -
Score a cool plant but don’t have soil or know what kind to use? We got you (and your plant) covered with our soil bar! Knowledgeable plant parents will be there to help you get what you need for your new plant baby. They will even share some knowledge on how to take care if it with fertilizers, watering routines, and light needs.

Pint Bag $1
Gallon Bag $2
