Plant Swap to turn Sunshine Coast green

HERE'S some good news if you are lacking a bloom or a bit of green in your life.

Get your sun hat on and have your osmocote at the ready - the second Sunshine Coast Plant Swap is on this weekend.

More of a plant bonanza than a plant swap, the event is set to be a great family day out over the Father's Day weekend with workshops, market stalls, a native beehive demonstration, kids' activities, sausage sizzle and prizes to be won.

Right in time for spring, STEPS Nursery are teaming up with Sunshine Coast online gardening group All Things Garden to host the event.

STEPS Nursery manager Lisa Buckley said she looks forward to seeing both new and familiar faces this time around.

"It's one of those feel-good community events where you get to meet like-minded people and make new friends,” she said.

"It's even better that attending the plant swap is free so everyone can get involved, you can grab a gift for dad at the markets and you know that money raised at the BBQ and raffle is all for a good cause.”

All money raised on the day will support not-for-profit garden centre STEPS Nursery, to help people learn new skills and achieve greater independence in life.

The nursery hopes to raise enough money to fill its new expanded space with more plants to allow greater opportunities to give back to the community.
