Events in Norfolk and Across New England

plant swapThe New England Plant Swap
Date:  Sat June 2, 2018
Time: 8:00 am – 11:00 am
Place:  Adams Farm, 999 North Street, Walpole MA

The New England Plant Swap just keeps getting bigger…and better. Gardeners from around New England will again convene at beautiful Adams Farm in Walpole to share gardening successes with new friends and neighbors.

The rules are simple: for each plant you bring to swap you can take another comparable plant. The more you bring, the more you can take. It’s rain or shine (the main swapping area is covered). The people are friendly and knowledgeable, and dogs are welcome! At the end of the swap, those that didn’t have plants to bring (or want more than they brought) are welcome to help themselves to the remaining plants. Perhaps most importantly, it’s completely free–even the coffee and the parking.
