It's time to get dirty, Jersey City.
Please join Kanibal & Co. at Corgi Spirits on Sunday, June 3rd from 12:00 - 3:00PM for the first annual JERSEY CITY PLANT EXCHANGE.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
Bring one to three plants to trade (pest free/ bare root or potted). Please label them in advance with as much information as possible (for example: plant name, preferred light conditions, etc). This is the one time where size really doesn't matter: we love them all, from tiny seedlings to big bushes. Just be prepared to part with whatever you bring and ready to adopt a new addition into your plant family.
WHAT TO EXPECT / WHAT YOU GET
The event cost is $35 and includes the following:
GIVEAWAYS: At check-in each participant will receive a custom tote filled with garden-themed goodies like seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, herbal soap from The Lucky Honeybee, accessories from The Moxie Fox, swag from Kanibal & Co. + more.
PLANT EXCHANGE: Bring one plant, swap one plant. Bring three, swap three! Plants can be purchased, grown, inherited, etc. We'll walk you through how to plant swap like a pro.
REFRESHMENTS: Complimentary custom-blended rose + hibiscus kombucha from Non-Nocere Botanicals and plant-based bites from Busy Bee Organics.
INFO SESSION: Helena Gouros, Jersey City urban gardener + the founder of The Urban Garden Companion, will get down and dirty about plants. She'll discuss topics such as: indoor plant care, propagation, succulents (they're not as easy as they seem!), indoor composting, creative outdoor plant care (roofs and stoops and fire escapes, oh my!), as well as general environmental tips like natural alternatives to chemical fertilizers and permaculture + wildlife support. The session will finish with a Q&A segment and then a cultivation class. Yes, more plants! Each participant will sow two different seeds to grow at home.
Cash bar provided by Corgi Spirits (21+ / ID mandatory). Corgi Spirits will be serving their limited-edition summer spirit, Garden Party Gin! It's a wonderfully lively and refreshing gin, with wisps of cooling cucumber, bright citrus and fresh herbs.
Empty pots at home? Bring them to our Dirt Bar hosted by 14th Street Garden Center. There will be à la carte plants for sale!
*Note: EXTRA DIRTY is not included in the ticket price.
PARKING / TRANSPORTATION / ETC
The venue, Corgi Spirits, has plenty of parking and is just a stone's throw from the Liberty State Park and Garfield Avenue light rail station.
