Gardeners' Swap & Share

Sponsored by the Heritage Trails Park District and the St. Marys Community Public Library, they are hosting Gardeners' Swap & Share from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the library.

Mike Doseck of the Great Grand Lake Beekeepers Association will have a presentation called "Pollinator Plants." 

Those in attendance can swap or share potted seedings and plant divisions with fellow gardeners — not necessary to bring items in to pick up freebies.

There will also be a craft for kids at Arts Place and refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Library.
