The Plant Exchange is a twice-a-year free community event that began in Oakland in October 2007 as a way for our 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.  We receive plants of all types and sizes. We also have an area for tools and other garden related items and happily accept yard art, mulch, goldfish, books, equipment, compost bins, and lawn furniture.  We have master gardeners to answer questions and plant specialists to help identify donations. And, it is all free to everyone.

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