Hey fellow SABers, just a heads up that at the upcoming EGA on Sunday, May the 12th, there will be an opportunity for us to have a plant swap and catch up as a community.
The Plant swap will be held in the garden space just to the side of the Springvale city hall and will take place during the lunch break of the symposium, 1pm to 2pm. Word is there will be some outdoor furniture and coffee cart on the lawn also to keep us caffeinated.
People are welcome to bring legal trades to share with the community, plants, seeds, cultures etc to trade/swap with each other and exchange plant knowledge and cultivation tips in a hands on fashion. It's a non-commercial trade space so please keep that in mind and bring goods to swap or give away, not sell for profit.
As a general rule, if you haven’t been to a plant swap before, it’s not a free for all, you need to communicate with the plant holder/owner before you take ownership of any goods as it may be earmarked for someone else, or may have been traded already that day. Common courtesy is the key you SABers know this already. But yes maybe bring some free plants to give to newbies – that's always a good idea. It might be some people's first plant swap/rodeo, so let's lead by example and initiate some new blood into the art of plant swapping.
If you don’t have anything to swap, you're still welcome to join in, there’s always something to learn and see and some cool and knowledgable people to meet. Also please let others know about the happening.
So join us in the garden, common plant heads, grab yourself an EGA ticket, get engrossed in informative lectures, learn something new from workshops, check out the stalls, attend the plant swap, meet like-minded people, engage in exciting conversations and let make a great day of it this May
