Swap seeds and more in Weybridge

WEYBRIDGE — With the arrival of spring (finally!), yard design and maintenance have risen again to the top of people’s to-do lists. Have you been thinking about switching to an electric lawn mower or weed whacker? Ready to start converting some lawn to a pollinator garden but need some plants, seeds or advice? The Weybridge Energy Committee invites all interested community members to an Electric Equipment Demo and Seed/Seedling Swap on Saturday, May 21, from 9 to 11 a.m. on the lawn at the Weybridge Congregational Church, 2790 Weybridge Road, Weybridge.  (Rain date is May 28, from 1-3 p.m., same location).

The committee will have an array of models and brands of electric lawn equipment (mowers, weed whackers, chainsaws, etc.) for people to try. Owners will be on hand to answer questions. As a bonus, they’ll have several electric cars on display with owners happy to answer your questions.

Happening simultaneously is the third annual Weybridge Seed Swap. Given the push for more native plants to support pollinators, organizers encourage participants in this year’s swap to bring native plant seeds and seedlings as well as vegetable seeds and starts that have not been treated with pesticides.

Representatives from Pollinator Pathway of Addison County will be available to answer your questions and share information. Anyone can participate, whether or not they have seeds or seedlings to contribute.  Participants are asked to label any seeds not in commercial packaging.

For more information about this free event, please email the Weybridge Energy Committee at energy@townofweybridge.org or Fran Putnam at franputnam24@gmail.com.
