The Great green Garden Exchange

25th-27th August - All Centres

In the spirit of all that is green, The Gardens Group is holding The Great Green Garden Exchange over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

At each centre we will have an exchange table where you can come and swap any gardening item, from seeds, books or pots to spades and forks. Anything goes - well almost, all we ask is that you don't bring living things.

Eg. tortoises, plants, fish or slugs!

We can start receiving goods during the week before and will have a wish list board to post requests on if you would like anything in particular.

Or simply arrive over the weekend, bring your item and exchange.

The Gardens Group accepts no responsibility for the condition of any items being exchanged but asks that items are in good condition.
