Seed & Plant Share and Gardeners Flea Market at Edenville Community Center

Seed & Plant Share and Gardeners Flea Market at Edenville Community Center

Saturday April 15th, 2023 * 8:00 AM
Calling all gardeners and lovers of growing things…
Do you have extra seeds, seedlings, plants to divide, or general garden gear that may find use with someone else?
Bring them to our first ever (hopefully annual) Seed & Plant share and take home something new!
If you’re a beginner or don’t have any seed/lings to share, you’re invited too.
This is a great opportunity to help you get started.
How it works…
~ Entrance is FREE
~ Organize your seeds, seedlings, plants that you would like to share and then place in the communal areas designated at the event
~ Nothing to share? Don’t worry, there will be a donation box as well.
~ Lots to share or sell? You may purchase a table for $10 and then charge for your wares accordingly
This event will take place rain or shine, preferably outside if the weather is nice, but will be moved indoors if not.
Please contact Jennifer at 717-404-5383 (call/text), or email jo.hull916@gmail.com if you wish to help/participate as an organizer or vender.
We’re looking forward to this growing season with you!!!
