Posted by – Elizabeth Brennan, Executive Assistant

The Auburn Hills Perennial Exchange is scheduled, rain or shine, this coming Saturday, May 17th.  Auburn Hills residents and our friends from surrounding communities will meet from 11am to 1pm at River Woods Park to participate in this annual springtime event.

What is a Perennial Exchange?   It’s an opportunity to trade your perennial plants for new and different plant varieties.    If you have an overabundance of a particular plant in your garden, dig up a part of the plant and separate it, label it (if you know what it is) and bring it to the Exchange to trade.    Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or backyard beginner, the exchange is an economical and fun way to diversify your garden.  And no need to bring your wallet.  This is a free event.

If you don’t have plants to trade, you’re invited to stop by anyway.  You’ll meet other gardening enthusiasts, pick up planting tips and tricks and have your questions answered by a master gardener.  While you are there, partake in complimentary baked goods and try your luck in a free gift raffle.  Gardeners may even have some extra plants to share.

To help us celebrate, our Downtown Auburn Hills businesses are offering specials that are sure to draw you Downtown after the exchange and all year long.

The Perennial Exchange is hosted by the Auburn Hills Beautification Advisory Commission.  We welcome you to join us at the beautiful River Woods Park pavilion on Squirrel road just south of M-59.
