HELP OUT: The Plant Exchange

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: The Plant Exchange



Project Overview

This event is where gardeners, landscapers, urban farmers, and beginners come to exchange plants, equipment, and information about ways to make the urban environment more sustainable, beautiful, and healthy. A few people giving a couple of hours of their time makes all the difference!

Volunteers will support by trimming, watering, arranging plants, helping shoppers, and more!

About the Plant Exchange

The Plant Exchange is a community and celebration that encourages resource sharing, reuse, recycling, and green practices. It creates strong neighborhood connections by people-to-people redistribution of excess plants and trees to help beautify and enrich our neighborhoods.

Project Requirements & Important Notes

Volunteers should wear clothes they are comfortable getting dirty.

Bring a hat, gardening gloves (if you have them), and a water bottle.

Volunteers will maintain social distancing.

Please do your part in keeping our community healthy. If you are immuno-compromised, at increased risk for severe illness, or feeling sick at all, please decline your registration to the event and register for a project at a less risky time. For additional resources and guidance on how to keep yourself healthy, visit the CDC website.

If your volunteer group is larger than the listed volunteer limit, contact Kim at kim@handsonbayarea.org
