Join us for some FREE plant-lovin’ fun at our annual Plant Swap, hosted by SUNY Orange Sustainability. Plant drop-off and sorting 9am-10am; swapping begins at 10am. Rain or Shine. All are welcome - bring a friend, but not your pet.

What’s a Plant Swap? Plant swaps are a fun way to get rid of any extra plants you may have (perennial divisions, seedlings, pack annuals, unwanted houseplants) in exchange for new plants by trading with other gardeners.

Tips for first time swappers:
- No invasives
- Plants should be in a container
- Label plants as well as possible (Annual/perennial, size, sun/shade, bloom color, etc)
- Bring flats or trays to bring your new plants home in
- Plants should be well watered, pest and disease free
- Dig plants a few days in advance so they can recover, and water well

Swap will be held on the South Street Lawn at the SUNY Orange Middletown Campus. Enter on South Street between Bio Tech Building and Morrison Hall (Mansion).

Fee: Free

The garden is situated on a one-acre property within a 1950s (IBM-era) suburban community. As a result of the mature growth trees which dominate the grounds, a shade perennial garden was created and cultivated over eighteen seasons of weekend gardening.

The assembled collection of plants, spread throughout numerous beds and man-made berms, relies heavily on the juxtapositions of color, texture, and form to bring interest and natural beauty to the garden. One of the highlights of the garden is the collection of more than 105 different hosta cultivars numbering more than 214 specimens, all labeled for ease of identification.

BONUS: Adams Fair Acre Farms will be on site with a Pop-Up Nursery selling many of the Shade Perennials featured in the Garden.

Fee: $7
