Remember to pot up extra plants as you divide and thin out plants in your garden this weekend. Then bring them to the 12th Annual Ridgecrest Neighborhood Garden Meeting and Plant Exchange to trade with others. There will also be a select offering of native plants, shrubs and trees for sale – with proceeds to go towards neighborhood projects.

Don't worry if you don't have plants to trade, there will be plenty of displays and information tables to check out hosted by Washington Native Plant Society, Washington Toxics Organization, Eco Enterprises (indoor gardening supplies), Diggin' Shoreline, Shoreline Backyard Habitat Program and WOWTA (Where Our Wild Things Are) and others.

The program for the evening: "Edible Gardening" presented by Seattle Tilth, will include information on raised beds, plant selection, safe materials, soil suggestions and more. 

Hand-outs will be available but you will want to bring pencil and paper to take notes because this year's program will inspire you to get grow your very own produce department.
