Thursday, May 18, 2023 - Plant Swap
Location: Aber Residence, Arvada, CO

Annual Plant Swap

Potluck 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Swap starts at 7:00 pm

The annual plant swap is one of the most fun meetings of the year. You bring plants from your garden and trade them for new plants. What's not to like? Last year we decided that it would be easier to have this meeting at a home rather than at Denver Botanic Gardens. This year it will be at Dan & Vicki Aber's house. In addition to the swap, there will be plenty of water features to see. If that's not enough, we will also have a potluck dinner to enjoy. We will also be offering Pondtabbs for sale.

Please bring a chair(s) for yourself or any guests. Also, bring an appetizer, salad, side dish, main dish, or dessert to share.

Just a friendly reminder - in consideration of the homeowner, please leave your pets at home.

Park on the street and enter the backyard through the gate, nearest the driveway.
