The Plant Exchange
From increasing home values to combatting anxiety and depression and taking on global warming, gardening provides innumerable benefits. It can, however, be an expensive hobby. The Ithaca West Plant Exchange was created to help ensure all of our residents can enjoy the wonders of gardening without breaking the bank.
Offering plants is simple. Simply click the link below and answer 4 simple questions.

Deerproof Veggie Gardens
Deer are incredibly beautiful animals. Their presence adds to the character of our neighborhood. Sadly, the eradication of their natural predators has created a high level of deer pressure on local plants. Nearly every gardener has suffered the heartbreak of learning that their months of hard work was mowed down in mere moments by a herd of deer.
Over the coming months we will be providing photos and insight from neighborhood gardeners that have been able to find a balance with these amazing, yet voracious animals. Have a success story? Email it, preferably with photos, to Andrew Bashi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
