Community Event

The Annual Plant Exchange

Saturday | March 23, 2019

The Plant Exchange is a free community event that began in Oakland, California in October 2007 as a way for neighbors to get to know each other. It also encourages reuse, recycling, organic living, resource sharing, and information exchange.

This event rapidly grew to include gardeners, landscapers, urban farmers, and outdoor fans from all 9 Bay Area counties.

There are plants of all types and sizes. There is also an area for tools and other garden related items and they happily accept yard art, mulch, goldfish, books, equipment, compost bins, and lawn furniture. There are master gardeners to answer questions and plant specialists to help identify donations. And, it is all free to everyone.

This one-day event is the premier plant exchange in California. Hundreds of people come for each event and over 2500 plants change hands.

The events are 100% volunteer run! There are many opportunities and activities to choose from. Visit the volunteer page or email connect@theplantexchange.org for more info.
