Plant and clothes swap: National Tree Day - Batemans Bay

Sunday 28 July 2024

9am - 1pm

Where: Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Garden, Princes Highway, Batemans Bay

Cost: Free - just bring environmental weeds from your garden, and clothing from your wardrobe to swap

Come along to our plant and clothes swap at the Botanic Garden.

If you're a Eurobodalla resident, bring along environmental weeds from your garden and swap them for free native plants to celebrate National Tree Day. You can also ask Council's Environment Team about pesky plants in your garden, learn more about bush-friendly alternatives and water-wise gardens, and get great gardening tips and advice.

Plant swaps are all about getting to the source of weed outbreaks before they have a chance to spread and giving you a great alternative for your garden.

We're also joining eco-friendly forces with Vinnies to create a clothes swap for the whole family. Swapping is a clever and thrifty way to refresh your wardrobe, save money and help fight textile waste. Your pre-loved clothes will find a new home and you’ll leave with ‘new’ second-hand items for your wardrobe.

To take part in the clothes swap, bring up to five items of clothing in excellent condition. Excellent condition means the clothing is clean, pressed and free from rips, holes, stains or major faults.
