MISC_Arts Center At Dunham logoCINCINNATI, OH – May 27, 2016 — The Arts Center at Dunham (ACAD) is hosting a Day in the Garden with Plants and Predators on Saturday, June 11 from 10 am until 4pm.

At this free event, gardeners young and old can swap plants, bulbs and seeds from flowers, vegetables, fruits and trees with other local gardeners and pick up new plants for their gardens. Swap participants should bring their plants in a container (pot or bags). The plants should be labelled with as much information, such as light and water requirement, height, spread, color, bloom time, and picture of bloom or mature plant. Plants will be grouped by light requirement.

The swap will begin at 10 am for those who have brought plants to swap. Those interested in starting a garden can come at 11 am to select any remaining plants, bulbs or seeds. Volunteers will be on hand to help place plants and answer as many questions as they can. This is a great way to get a garden started for free.

From 12 noon-2pm, gardeners can attend education presentations. These sessions include “Safe Deterrents for Unwelcome Garden Visitors” and “Attracting Desired Garden Guests.”

The ACAD FREE Family Fun Summer Series kicks off at 1 pm with crafts, snacks and special musical activities. At 2 pm, Raptors, Inc. will feature “Beaks and Talons” with three live avian ambassadors that families can see up close and personal.
