Event description
The biggest plant swap event in the GTA! Bring your plants to share and take new ones home!

About this Event

Come out to our plant lover’s community event! All you need in order to participate is to bring at least one plant that you’re ready to part with! You’ll be able to take home as many as you bring in. There will also be light refreshments, amazing raffle prizes, and a succulent cupcake decorating station!

What you can bring

  • House plants, succulents, cacti, ROOTED cuttings (even a tiny, little root is good, shows that the cutting is indeed growing!), aquatic plants, and bulbs
  • Avoid bringing invasive plants, plants with pest infestations, unhealthy plants or unrooted cuttings
  • No cannabis

Preparing your plants

  • Put your plant in a container with soil or water; wrap bare roots carefully
  • Every plant must be clearly labeled with the plant's name, care instructions, and placement (indoor/outdoor). This will help people pick and choose which plant they want to bring home (labels available below).

How the swap works

When you arrive, bring your plants to the Welcome Table. Our volunteers will count your plants and exchange them for sticks (a.k.a. “plant money”). Make sure to write your name on every stick you receive. Hold on to these until the swap starts!

The swap works in rounds.

ROUND 1: Use only 1 stick, place it in a plant you want.

After everyone has used their first stick, if the plant you want has only your stick in it, it is automatically yours!

If there is more than one stick in the plant, our volunteers will come around to do a random draw. The one they choose will win the plant and everyone else’s stick will be returned and you’ll have to immediately pick another plant that is not being contested for.

The round ends when everyone has received one plant for each stick.

ROUND 2: Use 2 sticks…..

ROUND 3: Use 3 sticks….
