- A neighborhood plant exchange will be hosted at 608 and 611 W. Dodds (corner of Dodds and Fairview), on Sunday, May 5th, from 1 – 3 PM.
Too many day lilies? Tall grasses need dividing? Black-eyed Susans taking over? Bring your extra plants, seeds, seedlings, starts and other living things to the neighborhood plant exchange. One gardener’s weed is another gardener’s salad! Perennials, annuals, shrubs, berry brambles, all are welcome! Exchange plants and gardening stories and get to know your neighbors. New to gardening, and don’t have anything to share? Stop by anyway, everyone is welcome. See you there!

Over the years, the subject of getting stop signs put in at Dodds and Fairview has come up from time to time. With enough support from neighbors, this might be the year we actually make it happen. Please come to our meeting on Thursday, April 4 and express your support for the addition of stop signs at that intersection.
