Joining them as donors, Midgett Realty teamed up with the Rodanthe-Waves-Salvo Civic Association for their Earth Day celebration. Hosting a native plant swap, they acquired over 375 native plants of 5 varieties, to aesthetically enhance our already beautiful island and promote environmentally sustainable gardening, with proceeds benefiting the Rodanthe-Waves-Salvo Civic Association's Scholarship Fund.

The plant swap encouraged folks to bring their extra plants (trees, bushes, flowers, vegetables), plant babies, bulbs, seed packets and more to exchange for something different. A great way to educate and entice folks to get into planting or to get plant-lovers engaged in a new variety of plant, the event was a major success.

The day held something for everyone from the youngest to the oldest! In addition to the plant swap, they had an activity for kids to create seed balls that they could plant in their gardens, local beekeepers and a variety of other educational organizations were in attendance, they held raffles and provided some delicious food options to fuel the comers and goers.

An exciting day celebrating Mother Earth, Midgett Realty was proud to be part of such a wonderful event and thanks the Rodanthe-Waves-Salvo Civic Association for including us in the fun!
