Are You Ready to Beautify Your Yard This Summer? Take part in the Kent State Plant Exchange!

What is a plant exchange? A plant exchange is where you dig up perennials (the plants and flowers that come back every year) that you may have overgrowing and taking over your flower beds and share them with others. Flower bulbs, veggie and flower seedlings also can be shared. Even if you don't have plants to share and would like to get started with gardening, you can still participate. There are plenty of plants to go around.

  • If you are interested in taking part in the plant exchange, please send an email to mterleck@kent.edu. You will then be sent a link to a Google Doc where you will select which plants you would like from the other participants and then list any plants you may have to exchange.
  • The actual exchange will take place outside Heer Hall (home of the Division of Human Resources on the Kent Campus) on Thursday, May 12.
  • This Plant Exchange is open to all Kent State faculty and staff who sign up ahead of time for plants via the Google Doc. 
  • New this year: All participants in the Kent State plant exchange will be entered into a drawing for a beautiful hanging basket!

Spread the word. Participation is free.

If you want to sign up or have questions, email mterleck@kent.edu by May 8.
