The Plant Exchange ( is a biannual plant swap and 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. Our last event brought in over 800 guests and involved hundreds of volunteer hours.

We have various stations where you can help out:

  • the information table
  • the dropoff area
  • silent auction
  • plant identification
  • loading and unloading cars
  • setup and cleanup
  • many more!

You can stay at one station for the entire shift or you can change and try something new.

Many of our volunteers have been involved since the beginning in 2008! They keep coming back because it is easy, fast and fun. (In other words, no one gets overworked.)

Come work a shift with us, meet people, and give back to the community. And go home with lots of beautiful plants!
