Colorado Native Plants | Denver Native Plant Swap & Giveaway

| Native Plant & Seed Swaps

What a fabulous turnout for the Third Annual Denver Native Plant Swap & Giveaway! Attendees had over 4,500 regionally native plants to choose from across a wide range of species. Thanks for all of your native plant donations.

The magic of this swap is that one year you may “take some” and then, as your native plant garden matures, you may “donate some – and still take some!” Now, you can look forward to the rewards of incorporating more regional native plants into your landscape to build habitat and support local ecosystems.

A HUGE thank you to the 37 volunteers covering 47 shifts to set up, take in plant donations, check people in, keep plants inventory watered and organized, clean up post-event. WHEW! The volunteers were essential in making sure the swap ran so smoothly. Please consider helping at this fall’s seed swap or next year’s plant swap. Not only is it FUN, but our volunteers are amazing native plant people who you can get to know better and learn from!
