Bring Your Green Thumb and Plants to the Arts Center at Dunham’s
5th Annual Community Plant Sale/Swap
CINCINNATI, OH – April 15, 2019 — The Arts Center at Dunham (ACAD) is hosting its fifth annual Community Plant Sale/Swap on Sunday, May 5th, from 10 am until 2 pm. This years’ event will be held in conjunction with Cincinnati Parks and Santa Maria Community Services “First Sundays Arts ‘n Smarts” event in Rapid Run Park (4450 Rapid Run Rd, 45205), just around the corner from our historic facility.
At this free event, gardeners 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) that is labelled with information, such as light and water requirement, height, spread, color, bloom time, and picture of bloom or mature plant.
The swap begins at 10 am for those who bring plants to swap. Those interested in starting a garden with no plants to swap can come at 11am to select any remaining plants, bulbs or seeds. Volunteers from the Hamilton County Master Gardener Program will be on hand to help place plants and answer questions. This event is a great way to get a garden started for free.
In addition to the free swap, flowering annuals, vegetable plants and hanging baskets will be available for sale. Perfect timing for Mother’s Day gift purchases! Baskets go quickly, so arrive early for the best selection.
Robben Florist & Garden Center (325 Pedretti Road), Allison Landscaping & Water Gardens (889 Anderson Ferry Road) and Wild Birds Unlimited Nature Shop (6496 Glenway Avenue) are partnering with the Arts Center at Dunham to donate a portion of their sales at the swap and at their stores through June 2 to benefit the Arts Center Restoration Fund.
