The Plant Exchange

Help Us Expand The Plant Exchange’s Impact!
The Plant Exchange is a free biannual community event that began in Oakland in 2007. On average, we draw 700 participants and exchange 2,500 plants. Every year we grow, and we have reached our limits.

That’s why we’re launching an IndieGoGo Campaign! We need $12,000 to incorporate as a 501c3 non- profit organization, secure a permanent home, and become self-sustaining.

If you value these events and have a few dollars to spare, please make a donation today! Go straight to IndieGoGo, or follow our instructions here.

The Plant Exchange is a biannual community event in Oakland, California which encourages reuse, recycling, organic living, resource sharing, and information exchange. Neighbors, gardeners, landscapers, urban farmers, and outdoor fans come from all over the San Francisco Bay Area. Learn more about us here.
