Save the date! Sunday, Aug. 18 from 12 Noon – 5 PM.
Book Beat will be celebrating its 37th anniversary with a local Seed Swap, Plant exchange, author events and store-wide sale!
Adopt a plant! Share and bring your extra seeds, plant cuttings (in small cups or containers) or small pest-free house plants you would like to give away. We will have tables set up to display the bounty. If you are bringing seeds, cuttings or plants, please bring them labeled with the plant name and your contact information if questions arise on plant care.
