Plant Swap

September 24, 2022
10:00am - 12:00pm

Join us for the next Plant Swap on Saturday, September 24 from 10-12pm in our mall hallway. We welcome everyone to bring plants, seeds, and pots to share!


This event is co-hosted by CU Plant People and Common Ground.


Here's how it works:

  • Bring your garden seeds & healthy, labeled (species/common name) potted plants or cuttings ( rooted or unrooted). Package cuttings accordingly so they won't suffer too much out of water during the swap.

  • Don't be afraid to ask the group for help ID-ing beforehand if you're unsure of what you are bring to the table(s).

  • Leave diseased, pest-ridden, or obviously struggling plants at home!

  • Bring plant accessories (planters, propagation stations, soil, plant tags, tools, fertilizer, whatever).

  • Most of the swap is loosely "bring one, take one" - you'll drop your offerings on one of the tables and walk around taking what appeals to you. No haggling/negotiations required. It's basically a free-for-all!

  • If you have higher-value items that you want to trade for other high-value items, there will be a table just for that. "High-value" is up to the owner to define. We have allowed sales at this table in the past, but the preference is to swap.

  • Do not be afraid to treat "high-value" items as ordinary items that you just drop on a table for someone to take (even in exchange for their spider plant baby). Make someone's dreams come true!

  • Depending on how many tables we have available, we may have a service table where people can trade for services, e.g., repotting.

  • We have ALWAYS had leftovers at the end, so if you have nothing to swap and are newer in your plant journey, this is a good time to come. Help us rehome some of the dregs (these tend to be common items like spider babies, aloe pups, pothos clippings, and garden divisions).

  • Masks are encouraged at this event.
