Plant swap scheduled for June 16

The MIT Gardeners' Group will hold its annual plant swap on Friday, June 16, from noon to 1:30 p.m. on the sidewalk near the MIT Chapel.

Participants should bring well-rooted and potted annuals, and perennials that have spread and need to be divided. The group asks that no houseplants or invasive species (including violets) be brought to the swap.

Plant swap participants receive vouchers in exchange for the plants they bring. Plants are not for sale during this event -- only swapping is allowed.��

Participants should drop off plants and pick up vouchers between 8:30 and 11 a.m. on Friday, June 16, near the MIT Chapel. Please label plants with the name, color, and as much detailed care information as possible.

Leftover plants will be given away at the end of the swap.

The event will be held rain or shine.
