UPDATE: Our second annual Earth Day and Plant Swap event was a HUGE success! We had a ton of foot traffic and it was wonderful to see the community come out and show support! 

We want to say a big thank you again to our Event Sponsors:

Midgett Realty, Surf or Sound Realty and Brindley Beach Vacations & Sales. Without your support this event wouldn't be possible. 

Also thank you to the local businesses who made a donation: 

Ace Hardware Avon, Alex's Shrimp Shack, Blue Whale, Buxton Village Books, Conner's Supermarket, Good Winds, Hatteras Island Pet Resort, Home Depot Kitty Hawk, Island Garden Center and Waves Coffee and Candies.

To the community groups who came and set up tables to share your information we thank you for your time and wonderful presentations. 

Lastly to our volunteers, we could not put on this type of event without your help and support so thank you!

If you are interested in helping out with this event or any other event next year please reach out to us at 

We are very excited for our Earth Day Event and Plant Swap. 

We will have booths set up from lots of wonderful community members and organizations. We will have local beekeepers, CHEC will be there with their electric vehicle, Hatteras Library, NC Coastal Federation, NPS and more.

There will be a planting activity and seed ball making activity for the kids to do. We will also be having a native plant giveaway!


There will also be fun raffles and food available to purchase. 

PLUS we will be bringing back the PLANT SWAP! Love or want to try plants but have a limited budget? Want to try something new but unsure if it will live on Hatteras Island? Overrun with plant babies? Bring extra plants (trees, bushes, flowers, vegetables) for indoor or out to share and “swap” with others. Have extra bulbs, seed packets or live plants from a multi-pack? Those are welcome too! You don't have to bring plants to participate but we just ask you to make sure we leave plenty to go around. 

Head to our Facebook page for all the latest info.
