This network will allow us to expand our collective opportunity for our environment by going green
Chevy Chase, MD (Vocus) August 18, 2009
One gardener’s green thumb has blossomed into an entire community of gardeners, online.
MyPlantExchange.com – a new online network for garden enthusiasts - is breathing new life into the garden community nationwide.
Visitors to the site will find gardening techniques, tips, how-to guides, social networks and discussion forums For those interested in nature, community and sharing, the benefits of MyPlantExchange are three fold. The site also provides a forum for visitors to connect with their local communities to exchange, donate, buy and sell extra plants – all with the purpose of providing a collective opportunity to share in the joy of gardening.
"Not only is it our goal to allow gardeners a forum to exchange gardening knowledge, but also equally important is the extension of the life and enjoyment of plants made possible by the exchange," said Phillip Rickett, co-founder of MyPlantExchange.com.
Ricket’s inspiration to create the online garden exchange grew out of his own organic love of plant life and his desire to share this joy with others. He hopes to expand gardening knowledge to other fellow gardeners and extend the life and enjoyment of plants by allowing for this special exchange.
For those who are not gardeners themselves, MyPlantExchange offers the opportunity to purchase or otherwise acquire plants and flowers on a non-retail basis, while still allowing plants to live a longer life.
"This network will allow us to expand our collective opportunity for our environment by going green," added Rickett.
