Attention: Champaign-Urbana Gardeners…

I doubt many of you in this community are from Champaign-Urbana, or even Central Illinois, but I have seen a few, so I am putting this notice out about something I am in no way affiliated with, but I am excited to go to next weekend. Here is the announcement:

Did you ever-so-ambitiously start too many tomatoes or peppers? Dividing hostas? Getting rid of daylilies? Don't compost 'em!! Consider bringing them in to sell at our Saturday, May 7 Plant Sale/Swap. We have a good start on plants, but we could definitely use more, and besides -- what better way to meet some fellow CGFCers who share your interest in plants?

If you have plants you want to donate, you can bring them to the co-op Friday night or early Saturday morning and we'll take care of the rest. If you want to swap or buy, bring either plants or money (or both!) to the sale and go from there!

The Sale/Swap runs from 9 AM - 1 PM on Saturday, 7 May and will be in the IDF and/or church parking lot. All proceeds will benefit Common Ground. Questions? Comments? Email Lisa at [email protected] or call the store and we can help you out.

Also, today marks the beginning of our awesome Earth Day Lip Balm Swap! Bring in a tube lip balm containing petroleum wax (paraffin) or lanolin and receive a FREE TUBE of any Merry Hempsters lip balm! Yes! We keep the old one and send it back to the Hempsters (who, I presume, will dispose of them accordingly) and you get to go home with one of their righteous (and vegan) lip balms! The promotion goes from today through Sunday April 24, and there's a limit of 2 lip balms per customer. Actual Earth Day is Friday, April 22....

I think these kinds of things are a great idea. I spend this weekend grabbing all the tiger-lily bulbs I can dig up. We have tons of them, so I intend to get rid of a bunch anyway by the end of the summer. This is a great motivator for digging them up now rather than later!
