Community Crop Swap planned

MARQUETTE — All gardeners are invited to Marquette’s Community COVID-compliant Crop Swap at 2:30 p.m. Eastern time Saturday at Harlow Park, along West Bluff Street. The event is sponsored by Transition Marquette and the Queen City Seed Library.

This year’s event will highlight the need for people to get the most from their gardening efforts and ensure nothing is wasted. The Crop Swap allows for home gardeners who have a surplus of garden produce to “swap” with gardeners who have a different type of garden surplus. Swapping allows for gardeners to “smooth out” or “fill in” gaps in their own garden output.

This event will observe strict COVID compliance measures. All participants in the Crop Swap must register in advance by calling 906-360-6839 or by sending an e-mail to transitionmarquette@gmail.com. Remaining produce at the end of the event will be donated to the Warming Center of Marquette.

For more information, contact Michael Riesterer at transitionmarquette@gmail.com or call 906-360-6839.
