Community Plant Exchange
June 15th @ 10:00 am



The Edelweiss Garden Club (EGC) invites all seasoned and budding gardeners to take advantage of its Annual Spring Community Plant Exchange. The “Exchange” will take place on Saturday, June 15, 10 am – 1 pm on the lawn of the Otsego County Courthouse in Gaylord. Plan to come rain or shine.

The Garden Club provides this opportunity to encourage area gardeners to “grow” a little and add something new to their gardens at no cost. All plants offered at the event are perennials (live from year to year without replanting) and a small selection of gardens accessories, including books, will also be available.

The Exchange is the result of Garden Club members sharing their love of gardening by digging, splitting and potting perennial plants from their gardens to give to others. You are encouraged, but not required, to bring a plant and take a plant. If you have too much of a particular flower in your garden, why not dig some up, pot it, and share it with others? Then, take home something new to try. The Exchange is a perfect time to add new variety, texture and color to your garden! Club members will also be on hand to try to answer any questions.

EGC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded to provide gardening knowledge and to beautify our community through public gardens, including those at the Energy Outlet (Sportsplex), Loon Rest Area, the Courthouse, to name a few. For more information about EGC, contact Pat Sitz, President at 989-786-3965 or email patsitz1@yahoo.com.
