Attention Houseplant Lovers: Swap Cuttings Saturday, at 2pm, in the CV Play Area

26 Apr

As part of Saturday’s Earth Day Fest, there will be a CV plant swap.

Come to the Houseplant Swap!

Join the Recycling and Sustainability Committee and your neighbors this Saturday to celebrate our home planet and learn more about upcycling opportunities at CV !

How a Plant Swap Works

Bring a plant cutting, take a plant cutting.  This swap is for residents looking to exchange or give away healthy, pest-free cuttings or houseplant starts.  Please no donations of unwanted plants or planters that need a new home.  Bring your plant cuttings, preferably labeled, in a container that you do not need back, to the children’s play area behind 195 Adams St at 2pm. 

Share ’em if you have ’em!

Particpants are welcome to swap or just donate (healthy) plant cuttings. If there are extras, they will be given away at 2:30pm on a first come, first served basis.

There will be other plant-friendly activities during Earth Day Fest, including

Make an upcycled plant hanger Bring a medium sized pot to make a decorative hanging for it! Or just yourself and a willingness to learn! We will have a limited supply to share.

Plant Spring Flowers with GrowNYC Compost! Ever wonder where the food scraps go? We will use finished compost materials to help fertilize flower seedlings as we transplant them into CVEarthlan.com’s sidewalk planters and window boxes.

Earth Day Fest is happening on Saturday, April 30 from 12pm-3pm outdoors, in multiple locations on CV grounds. The Shredding Truck will be onsite, behind 215 Adams Street, from 12noon until 4pm.
