Oconee Bell Chapter Plant Swap and Children’s Pollinator Activities at the “Green Market” of the Cashiers Village Green

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

To attract families, we plan on providing some fun pollinator activities for children of all ages (more details coming).

If you plan to bring plants for the swap, please have them labeled with both the botanical and common name.

As you are potting plants, please pot your small plants for the swap at least 4 weeks in advance to give them time to settle. Members who bring plants to exchange will have the first opportunity to select plants, and then remaining pots will be exchanged by or given to non-members and guests.

No plants to trade? No problem, we will have plenty to share! Members who are knowledgeable about native plants will have useful resources, so this will be a great opportunity to ask questions and learn.

Our native plant exchange event is being planned for the Green Market which was founded on the mission of The Village Green to enhance the quality of life for Cashiers area residents and visitors by offering a tailgate market featuring fresh, locally grown food.

The Oconee Bell Chapter has applied for a “vendor” booth at the  Green Market of the Cashiers Village Green. If enough volunteers are interested we might host a booth about once a month, from 2-5 pm usually on the second Wednesday of each month from April through September. To plan for each event, such as the native plant swap and pollinator plant activities on May 29, a group of volunteers is meeting before each event. Activities for the first Green Market will be planned by March 14th. Those who register should watch for an email from OconeeBellCO@ncwildflower.org for their invitation and details about the date and time of a planning meeting to be held at the Hotel Cashiers Piano Bar.

The event is open to everybody.
