About this Event

What is a plant swap?

It is an event where plant enthusiasts gather together to exchange or trade baby plant cuttings or baby plants. During the plant swap there will be raffles and amazing prizes!

How can I participate?

First you will need some plants that you are willing to trade. You can take some cuttings of your current houseplants and start rooting them today! Unique, rare plants will get you the best trades, but feel free to bring those pothos and spider plants if you wish.

How does the plant swap work?

Come as early as you can as the selection will most likely be the best at the start of the event. The rules are simple: you can trade as many plants as you bring. Everyone will come in and place their plants on the table. All plants must be labelled with the name of the plant and your Instagram handle/name. Your plants MUST be healthy and pest- free, either potted or bare root. Please plan ahead and start rooting your plants early.

Tickets

The ticket proceeds will cover the venue rental fee, and the rest will be donated to the York Region Food Network. Even if you cannot attend the event, donations to YRFN are still welcome. By participating or donating to this event, you are contributing positively to the community.
