This was another successful plant swap.
We were a total of 20 swappers. Although the variety was not extensive, like previous swaps, we had new faces present. The next swap will be in Curepipe, at the beginning of 2021. Stay tuned!

How does the swap work?

Each participant brings 3 healthy potted plants to swap. Upon arrival the plants go on a communal table and the swapper gets a swap number.
There are three separate baskets with the numbers 1-23 in them (number of participants). The swap works in 3 rounds, each round the numbers are drawn at random ,and everyone gets a chance to pick one plant. The draw does 3 rounds until everyone gets 3 plants.

Another thank you to everyone who took part in the market;

I aim to organise the swap every 2 months alongside a plant market.
