Spring Plant Exchange

Each Saturday in May, the London Public Library is hosting a Spring Plant Exchange.

This FREE event happens at different locations, at different times. To participate, bring your extra cuttings, bulbs, and plants to the library location at the specified time and exchange them with other gardeners to plants that you need or want. Please bring all plants in leak-proof containers with clearly written labels on them.

A Master Gardener may be on hand at the events to answer any questions.

This Weekend in London

APRIL

** You might notice that our post is BLUE today! That’s because it is WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS  DAY. We have lots of love for our children, neighbours, friends, classmates, cousins, nephews, nieces, sisters, and brothers with autism, all of the therapists, teachers, aides, volunteers, and clinicians who are working with the ASD community and ESPECIALLY all of the LondonMoms out there who are supporting someone with ASD. For more information on ASD and the London branch of Autism Ontario, see HERE

It is Easter weekend and if your kids are school-aged, that means they’ll be home for a whole four days in a row. That is either cause to celebrate or cringe! We suggest you enjoy it! If you’re looking for something to do before or after that giant bunny drops by your house, here are our suggestions. 

EASTER EGG HUNTS

There are a number of Easter Egg Hunts happening in London this weekend, other than the ones that the EB may leave for you in your own home!
