Title: EcoFriendly/Gardening/Hippie Swap 2?
Post by: hawkeyes_girl on January 01, 2012 05:37:17 AM
Hi all! I organized a swap like this last year and it was a lot of fun. I'm already thinking about spring planting in my garden so I wondered if anyone would like to bust through cabin fever with me.
Gardening or upcycled or eco-friendly items are the focus. We did lots of eco-friendly products as well. (reusable paper substitues, cleaning supplies, homeade beauty products, windchimes, etc.) Inspiration pics below!

Love that skirt!  I'm glad you're mentioning this early in the year, we're starting seeds in a few weeks.

Ooh, I'd be in!! I loved last year's swap. You can never have too many windchimes....

Since I am a first time swapper, I can only sign up for one at a time and I just signed up for the envelope swap. If that one is done by the time this one starts, I am definitely in! Vegetable gardening is my thing!!!

Even though I have no idea what I'm doing as far as my garden is concerned this year (our soil in the backyard was replaced due to oil contamination following Hurricane Irene  :-\), I don't know if I can say no to this!

Oh, this sounds like lots of fun. I am started to get some seed catalogues in the mail!

Though I don't have any land of my own - I'm a container gardener (a whole line of pots of all sorts are down my balcony. Luckily, I have a big balcony).

Check out my Gardening & Farms Pinterest for some inspiration, perhaps: http://pinterest.com/psyche13/gardening-farms/ (http://pinterest.com/psyche13/gardening-farms/) - anyone else have one?

Psyche - we have 20 acres and still load our deck with pots!  This is from last Summer.

I would love to join. However, I am full at the present time, so it would depend on timing.  :-\

I'm thinking last week of Jan signups, crafting through Feb, sendouts early March?

I hope I can make it work. I'll have to wait and see what happens. Maybe if I send early one of my organizers will give me early feedback.

I have one, too, psyche: http://pinterest.com/abbeeroad/garden/

I think I'm going the container route also.  ;D
