Annual Native Plant/Seed Swap and Potluck – November 16

November 16, 2023 @ 6:00 pm 8:30 pm

Before you start all of your Thanksgiving festivities, join us for one of favorite annual events! If you have native plants, you likely have some new seedlings that have popped up, clumps that need to be divided, and seed heads to collect. Gather them up and trade them for some new species! This is always a fun event. What’s better than free plants, right?

Please only bring specimens that are locally native to Harris and surrounding counties or the Gulf Coast ecoregion. You can also bring other useful native plant related materials you don’t need any more like books or tools.

This is a great opportunity to network with your fellow NPSOT-H members, meet the board, and enjoy time with other native plant enthusiasts. We hope you can join us; please bring your favorite sharable dish for the potluck!

Note we start earlier than our normal meeting and have a potluck dinner. Here is a rough outline of our schedule for the evening.

  • 6:00 pm – Set-up plants and seeds/social time
  • 6:30 pm – Potluck dinner
