Plant drop off will start at 9 a.m. with the exchange of plants beginning at 10 a.m. Two free plants (subject to availability) will be given to everyone who attends and everyone is encouraged to bring plants to share.

Each visitor will get one additional plant for each one they bring. Please label plants according to type if possible. There will be information booths, items for sale from local vendors such as honey, Alpaca Poo, and soil testing kits.

Live music will entertain the crowd. Contact 419-354-9050 or the Wood County Plant Exchange Facebook page for more information.

The May 4, Toledo Plant Exchange, will be held at Ohlman’s Farm and Greenhouse, 3901 Hill Ave., with plant drop off beginning at 8:30 a.m. with the exchange at 10 a.m. For more information contact 419-578-6783 or go to the Lucas County Plant Exchange Facebook page.
