    Magical-- we gave away and mapped over 100 useful plants. People brought amazing things. I loved watching the joy on peoples faces as they swapped plants and growing tips. Have to do this again next year!

    A lot of people turned out, there were a good many plants offered for swap. I don't have a lot of fruit plants and was delighted to get a raspberry, jostaberry and currant.

    It was very helpful. I got so much of what I needed. Even got a wildflower plant id'ed that I'd been wondering about. Of course, with all the new info that was shared, I already forgot.

    Hi Lisa,
    I just joined the coup and am wondering what "mapping/C3 Photobooth refers to.
    Is the location right in Thorne's Market and pretty obvious?
    Are the workshops free? Probably not hands-on, right?
    thanks for letting me know.
