HELP OUT: The Plant Exchange

Save to Favorites

The Plant Exchange



The Plant Exchange encourages reuse, recycling and organic living. This community-wide, free event is where gardeners, landscapers, urban farmers, and beginners come to exchange plants, equipment and information about ways to make our urban environment more sustainable, beautiful, and healthy.

Volunteers will help out with trimming, watering and arranging plants, and helping shoppers. This is a great opportunity to meet your East Bay neighbors and volunteer for a good cause. In its 11th year, The Plant Exchange creates strong neighborhood connections by people-to-people redistribution of green materials back into the community.

Activities include:

Trimming plants

Watering plants

Arranging plants

Helping shoppers

Restocking tables

Setting up and breaking down tables

Tidying up

Sweeping

And more!

** For the April 19 Special Event ONLY - The Volunteer Work Day will include: planting a hillside with succulents, sorting and organizing pots/supplies, spray painting pots and painting signs.

All activities are outside while maintaining social distancing. Volunteers should wear clothes they are comfortable getting dirty, bring a hat, gardening gloves if they have them and a water bottle.

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 tips on keeping yourself healthy, visit the CDC website for more information.
