Giving Back to Our Community

The Plant Exchange is committed to promoting sustainable gardening practices through reuse and recycling. One of the ways we achieve this is by partnering with local businesses, nurseries, landscapers, and commercial growers to pick up their excess garden materials and re-distribute them to the communities where we live, work, and play.

Thanks to our Sponsors and Donors, we have been able to keep excess plants and trees out of landfills and give them new life within our neighborhood.  Below is a partial list of Plant Exchange donation recipients.

Ability Now Bay Area (Oakland) Free Oakland Up (Oakland)
AIDS Project of the East Bay (Oakland) Jewish Family Community Services (Walnut Creek and Berkeley)
American Indian Child Resource Center (Oakland) Melrose Leadership Academy (Oakland)
Bret Hart Middle School (Oakland) Merritt College Horticulture and Landscape Department
Building Skills Partnership (Oakland) Oakland Adult Career & Education (Oakland)
Building Opportunities For Self Sufficiency (Berkeley) Public Library of Science (San Francisco)
Diablo Valley College (Pleasant Hill) Street Level Health Clinic (Oakland)
