In the exchange, for each item donated another can be taken home. Larger items equate to a few extra goodies per item. If you forget to bring exchange items and still want to partake, a small donation (ie. $1 ea.) would be appreciated.
Many gardening and environmental organizations will be invited to set up information tables. We will have guest speakers available throughout the day to discuss a range of topics of interest for beginners through to advanced gardeners.
