Plant Swap to Raise Funds for METCO Scholarship Fund, May 18

Bring a Plant/Take a Plant: Ferns creeping out of bounds? Hostas growing like weeds? Lily of the Valley taking over your yard? Now is the time to thin your garden. Don’t put those Iris divisions into the compost bin. Trade them in!

Bring a plant – Take a plant at the 4th Annual Plant Swap on Saturday, May 18, from 11am–2pm at 27 George Street (near Centre and Cabot intersection).

Use flowerpots, milk cartons, coffee cans, yogurt tubs, and even plastic bags to pot up your cast-offs. Labels would be nice. Early drop-offs are fine. Exchanges are free, but please consider the donation box marked “Newton METCO Scholarship Fund”. An annual project started by a Bigelow Middle School student, now at NNHS, to benefit his METCO classmates through the best of ‘recycling’. Questions? Email Barbara Howard.
