Get Involved with a Plant Swap

Candide are setting up a Plant swap to encourage employee wellness at work. Details wise, we’re looking to hold the plant swap on an evening or during the day, whatever suits! For people to join in the plant swap, employees can either come along and buy a plant or they can bring one along to swap with someone else’s or one of theirs 🙂 If they just want to browse that’s also fine!
