Ephrata Mennonite School invites you to its Annual Plant Exchange on Friday, May 6. The event starts at 1:00 p.m., with the exchange taking place at 1:30 p.m. Herbs and specifically chia, a member of the mint family, are the theme for this year’s exchange. The students have planted chia seeds, basil and various other seeds under grow lights. Chia will be featured in the refreshments served by the students.
The Plant Exchange will feature herbs, perennials, annuals, bulbs, seeds, fruit and vegetables, shrubs and trees, house plants, water garden plants and ground covers. Visitors are invited to become involved by bringing one or more potted and labeled (kind of plant, flower color and growing conditions) plant to the exchange in exchange for the same number of plants of their choice. To keep the selection of plants attractive for everyone, only one invasive plant will be allowed per person. The Plant Exchange is held rain or shine on the grounds of Ephrata Mennonite School, 598 Stevens Road, Ephrata, at the corner of Stevens Road and Schoeneck Road. For directions or more information, call the school office at 717-738-4266.
