The next Plant Exchange is on Saturday, October 8 at 4500 Lincoln Avenue in the spacious grounds of Ability Now Bay Area.

The Plant Exchange is a biannual community event in Oakland, CA 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 the event!

⇒ Come Hungry. The Plant Exchange now features two food trucks and a coffee station. Welcome this great addition to our events!

⇒ Easy Drop-off. Take advantage of our expedited drop-off during events. With a dedicated drive-though lane, it’s easier than ever to deliver your donations.

⇒ Extra Parking. The Plant Exchange has multiple parking areas. Our on-site parking attendants will ensure everyone finds convenient parking.

⇒ Come Help Out! Plant Exchange events wouldn’t be possible without volunteer support. Our last event brought in over 800 guests and involved hundreds of volunteer hours. Come work a shift with us and go home with lots of beautiful plants!
