Plant Swap: 4 May

Bring a plant — take a plant

As part of the build-up to our Open Gardens weekend, we’re hosting a plant swap on the library lawn (weather permitting) on Saturday 4 May from 10 am to 2 pm. The rules are simple: bring a plant – take a plant. All plants must be clearly labelled. 

If you wish you can bring plants in to the library beforehand on Wednesday 1 May or Friday 3 May, and get a receipt. However, no plants may be taken away until the event opens on Saturday.

No money will change hands.

The Sheffield Free Bird Challenge

26 April at 7.30pm: The Sheffield Free Bird Challenge with Peter Brown

In 2016 well known Sheffield bird watcher Pete Brown set out to see how many bird species he could find in the Sheffield area in one year at no cost to his pocket or the planet! Birding only by bike, boots and bus (senior citizen’s bus pass) Pete set a target of finding 150 different birds and raising £1,500 for Cancer Research UK. His talk looks at highs and lows encountered during the year and shows just how rich in bird life our city and its surroundings can be.

Tickets £5, available from library reception now.
