Sun, Jun 4, 11am-5pm For Garden’s Sake Plant Swap
Dust those leaves and knock off that dirt because For Garden’s Sake is hosting a plant swap! Want to change things up in your plant collection? Bring a plant (or two, or three…) to their plant swap, located at The Potting Shed, where everyone will take turns selecting a new plant for their collections.

The event fee is $5, which includes a mimosa or a regular Sunset Slush. They’ll also be opening up The Potting Shed for this event if you would like to purchase a different (or second) drink. Sip on a mimosa while you make new friends and freshen up your plant collection. Please come prepared to share details with the group about caring for the plants you are offering up to swap. Everyone must bring at least one plant to contribute to the swap! Please label each plant with at least its name – lighting and watering preferences are also encouraged. Plants must be disease and pest-free.

Fri, Jun 16, 5pm-8pm For Friday’s Sake
Need more time to shop? Well, you’re in luck! Every third Fri, the For Garden’s Sake will extend their Garden Center hours until 8pm. In addition to evening shopping, The Potting Shed will be open and serving beverages and Sunset Slush as well. Come and enjoy the ambiance on the patio and take in the sunset. Don’t forget to bring lawn chairs or a blanket for seating – the patio tables go fast! Admission is free, so bring your family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers and enjoy the evening.

Please note: They will not have a food truck at this event and highly recommend bringing a picnic to enjoy or stopping by your favorite restaurant and grabbing takeout on your way to FGS! Please note that they only permit outside Non-Alcoholic beverages, but they have a variety of drinks available at The Potting Shed.
