Andre Leite Alves from Rochester promotes the 2012 Organic Vegetable Garden Exchange.
Rochester, New York (PRWEB) February 24, 2012
When separating vegetable plants this year, rather than dropping them in the yard waste container, drop by the Andre Leite Alves Rochester NY Organic Vegetable Garden Exchange and find someone to exchange plants with and get new vegetable plants.
“This is a great way for organic gardeners to promote an healthy plant exchange and add new varieties of vegetable plants to any organic vegetable garden in Rochester New York. Organic vegetable gardeners also have a change to meet other Rochester gardeners, share information and experiences...and eat foods that are pesticide free, while saving money,” said Andre Leite Alves from Rochester NY Organic Vegetable Garden Exchange. Andre Leite Alves will be hosting the Rochester NY annual organic vegetable garden in the spring of 2012.
“This is one of the best times of the year to share vegetable plants. Dig them now while they’re small enough to handle. They’ll adjust to their new location faster with growth just starting” mentions Arthur Leite Alves from Rochester, NY.
No registration is required for the event, which will take place at the Rochester, NY 12 Corners. Leite Alves said, “This is a free event, and only trading of organic vegetable plants is permitted. All plants should be labeled, and only healthy, pest-free and chemical free plants may be exchanged.”
Organic vegetable plants may be in bags, boxes or any other disposable containers. Those who have plants to sell may do so at the neighborhood garage sales in Brighton New York.
Andre Leite Alves from Rochester, NY owns Aware Bear Computer Repair in Pittsford, NY reminds people about not selling plants or garden supplies at the Rochester NY Organic Vegetable Garden Exchange group. “The Rochester Organic Vegetable Garden Exchange group was created in order to promote the plant exchange between neighbors and friends. The whole idea is to exchange the surplus plants instead of throwing them out” said Andre Leite Alves from Pittsford, New York.
When gardeners bring a plant to the free Organic Vegetable Plant Exchange Group, a space where the exchange can take place will be given. Labeling all plants is recommended in order to help the plant identification process. Plants should be identified by type, such as “Red peppers, Zucchinis, Broccoli or any other vegetable” These labels can help expedite the exchange process, said Arthur Alves from Rochester New York.
