Join Blue-Green Connections at Edgewater Park in downtown Dunedin for a shoreline cleanup and plant/seed swap. Protect our Hope Spot by helping to keep plastics and other trash from becoming marine debris! Plants can also protect our waters! Planting natives and otherwise useful non-invasive plants help the environment and/or prevent unnecessary pollution. Do you have natives, edibles, medicinals, nitrogen fixers, pollinator plants, etc, that you’d like to share? Bring them! After the cleanup, beginning at 10:30, those involved can swap for ones they don’t have or just give or receive while meeting like-minded people! There will be no charge for the plants/seeds, just an opportunity to all learn, give and receive
WHERE TO MEET: Edgewater Park. Registration will be just west of the restrooms at the park. All participants in the cleanup and plant swap must register and sign waiver
