Botanista’s inaugural Community Plant Swap

On the 31st of August at 11:30 am, Botanista will be hosting their first Community Plant Swap! This is the perfect opportunity for plant lovers to come together as a community and trade their plants for some new additions as well as get to know some other plant lovers. Come along, meet crazy plant people, have fun and bring home some new plants!

How  it works

This is all about trade – not sales – we’re not selling plants here friends! Simply bring along 1-5 pest-free, healthy plants, either potted or bare rooted, that you are looking to swap for an alternative plant. For each plant you bring you will be given a popstick with your name on it that you can use to show your interest in other’s plants! There’ll be plenty of time to check out others’ plants and get to know fellow plant parents. We’re estimating around an hour for the swap, but we haven’t done this before – so depending on numbers we may go a little over time!

Bringing less common or more sought after plants will probably result in getting something cool in trade. Having said that, we’re happy for you to bring along ANY plants you’ve got to trade. No plant snobs, just plant community spirit.


To secure a spot at the swap and to help us keep track of numbers, you can purchase a ticket here or in store at Botanista for $5. Profits from the plant swap will be donated to the Hackham West Community Garden.

Some important notes about the plant swap

We will ask to see your plants before trade begins, and will not allow plants with pests, or plants that are declared noxious weeds – we are committed to responsible plant parenting as well as our environment. We also understand that sometimes people are not aware that plants are declared weeds, so please be nice if we don’t allow a plant for these reasons (all the more reason to bring along a few!).
