The Annual Plant Exchange Event is October 22, 10am - 3pm
The Plant Exchange is a free community event that began as a way for our neighbors to get to know each other.
To attend the free plant exchange sign up here to make an appointment. We refresh the tables every hour with plants and supplies.
Early drop-off: No appointment needed, just come at these posted dates and times.
Same-day donations: you are welcome to drop off on October 22, during the event. The drop off area is open from 9 - 2. Follow the signs. To enjoy your full hour of shopping time, come a bit earlier to drop off and park.

How We Grew!
After 7 years we outgrew our original Lakeshore location and moved to the block-long front yard of the First Presbyterian Church in downtown Oakland. In 2015 we had the opportunity to establish a relationship with Ability Now Bay Area, which was able to offer us a temporary warehouse space. This year, we have finally found a permanent home for our events space and warehouse are now at 11144 Golf Links Road, Oakland, CA 94605.
