Save The Date

Our next Plant Exchange will be Saturday, Oct. 21st. Thank you to those who joined us in March. With over 1,050 guests it was our biggest and best exchange to date.

Note: No dogs allowed. We love dogs! But for the safety of our participants and your pet we ask you leave them home. Service animals must wear an identifying vest.

The Plant Exchange is a free semi-annual 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!
