Calling all garden enthusiasts! North Oakland Plant & Garden Supply Swap takes root Saturday, Oct. 6

Have plants you need to prune? Extras that don’t seem to fit in with your home or garden? Started too many seeds this year?

Bring them all down to the North Oakland Plant Swap this Saturday, Oct. 6 and trade them with your neighbors for some new-to-you plants and gardening supplies.

At the free plant swap you can bring plants, cuttings, seedlings, starts, foraged plants and seeds of edible and non-edible plants.

This is also a great place to bring any extra gardening supplies you have: pots, natural fertilizers,  vermicompost/worms, garden tools, stepping stones, etc. Pass them all on to a new home and come pick up some new-to-you plants for your garden and home.
