Our next Hawaii Kai Plant exchange returns to its normal time and place.
First Tuesday: September 5, 2017
Kaiser H.S. Farmer's Market: Kaiser High School Parking Lot, Tuesday
Time: 4pm - 7pm
Bring your plants, cuttings, seeds and gardening items. Exchange them for donations from other participants. If you don't have a plant to exchange, you can always donate to the Kaiser PTSA. Come check it out. Both the exchange and the farmer's market have been growing and there's something for everyone.
Although our plant exchange is normally held on the first Tuesday of the month, this year falls on July 4 and the farmer's market will be closed for the holiday.
We'll be there on July 11, so please keep growing your plants and coming to our exchange. This month I expect to be bringing shiso since the seedlings are ready for new homes. I'll update this post with other plants that are coming, including Caladium that looks like this picture.

Our next Plant and seed exchange will take place on the first Tuesday of June, June 6. It's held at Kaiser High School from 4-7 pm. Bring a plant and take a plant. If you don't have one to exchange, you can always bring us one the following month, or if you prefer to leave a donation, proceeds will go to Friends of Kaiser PTSA and be used for scholarships and fee assistance for students and teachers.
Once again it's time for the first Tuesday plant swap at Kaiser High School. We'll be there from 4-7 at the farmers' market in the school parking lot. As of this weekend, here are the plants it looks like we'll start with.
Tomatillo (green and/or purple)
Mini pear tomatoes (yellow and/or red)
Dracaena (white/green and red/white)
Bearded Iris (purple)
This is a tentative list. Some items such as mint and jalapeno are plentiful and we'll likely have them available throughout the event. Others are more limited in quantity. Bring your plant to and take another in exchange. It's a true community sharing experience.
Mahalo Everyone !
This month's plant exchange / plant swap was a resounding success thanks to you. We were overwhelmed by the response, from those who drove from as far as Makaha, Wahiawa and Kahaluu just to participate, to those of you who volunteered to assist with set up and running the event.
Here's a picture of me pet-sitting a guinea pig. She and I got to be good friends. My new buddy burrowed down and fell asleep while her owners browsed the ever-growing farmer's market.
The next exchange will be May 2nd, the next first Tuesday of the month. Hope to see everyone there!
