          Bring a plant, take a plant. The Exchange is a fun and frugal way for beginners and experts alike to add diversity and interest to your garden, and to meet and exchange tips with like minded Green Thumbs. If you have an overabundance of a particular plant, dig up part of the plant, separate it, label it (if you know what it is), put it in a pot or plastic bag, and bring it to the Exchange to trade. Houseplants are also welcome! Sponsored by the Friends of the Spencer Township Library.
