We're excited to host a special pop up event in Oakland on Saturday, October 14 from 9am-1pm.
The sale will feature a wide selection of more than 100 planting pots, plant stands and yard decor items to choose from, plus a few plants, of course! Everything will be priced to sell.
A sample of items is featured above, with a more complete album here. More photos coming soon as we gather and unload items!
The Plant Exchange team would like to give a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped and supported us at our sales, events, and programs, especially our amazing volunteers. We could not have thrived without you.
– ODETTE POLLAR, FOUNDER
We've gotten lots of questions during this process and want to answer a few of them.
Why did The Plant Exchange close?
Odette, our Founder and Director, is retiring after 15 years of service. Given the operational logistics of the organization in its large facility, the best option was to fully close the Golf Links Road location.
What happens to The Plant Exchange now that you have moved from the warehouse?
Let's Keep Planting! Do you know of a community group or nonprofit looking to expand their programs? Or maybe a social enterprise or company looking to add a nonprofit arm? We're looking for creative ways to keep The Plant Exchange concept going and welcome your ideas and referrals.
Why did it Odette retire? Is she ill?
No! She’s just ready to retire, relax, travel, and enjoy time with her community.
Where can I donate things?
FOR GARDENING TOOLS/SUPPLIES/POTS, etc. AND HOMEWARES
FOR ARTS AND CRAFTS
