Why buy when you can swap? Join us for an afternoon of trading plants and stories with Anna from Wilding Studio.
Do you have an interesting specimen in your yard? Perhaps you are delving into plant propagation or are just curious to see what house plants other people are hiding. Bring a plant or cutting with a story and swap it for something else to add to your collection.
How does it work?
- Bring along a cutting, seedling or established plant to swap.
- Bring along any stories or knowledge you might have about your specimens.
- Contribute your plant or plant(s) to the pool of greenery.
- Swap for something that takes your eye.
Plant swaps are money free exchanges and operate as an honesty system. This event is all about repriciosity, so please take an equal amount to what you contribute.
We kick off the swap with some greenery from the Stackwood collection and we have never seen anyone leave empty-handed, so don't be shy about contributing. In our experience, you will always receive back your share of greenery, conversation and community feels in-kind (and some!)
- We love indoor plants, but all varieties are welcome including natives and edible species.
- Rare and interesting species are encouraged.
- There is no limit to how much you can bring, but please make sure you can carry your plants with you.
- Let's cut down waste together, it's a great idea to bring a box or reusable bag with you for your findings.
- It is important that plants are healthy, bug and disease free, if you aren't sure - please leave them at home. If your plant is a health risk, you'll be asked to remove it.
- Our plant experts will be there to help you identify plants that you may not be sure about. Be sure to pick their brains for their years of plant knowledge.
- Children very welcome but are to be with a guardian at all times.
- Get down early for the best swaps!
