Plant Shares

Fall Plant Share
Saturday, September 23

127 Amherst Street

9:00 - Noon

Share your extra perennials, fruit bushes, and vegetable starts with other neighborhood gardeners! These popular exchanges are a great way to pick up new plants to diversity your garden while giving your divided perennials, fruit bushes, and extra vegetable starts a good home. The plant share is designed to be an exchange, though we suggest a $2 per plant minimum donation if you do not have plants to bring. 

This fall we will also host a seed swap at the fall plant share! Ask questions, pick up seeds, and/or bring some of your own to share.

ClearStream Containers For Your Event

Did you know? MGCC has ClearStream Containers to help promote zerowaste events! When you plan your next event, call our office to reserve the recycling and/or compost containers. For a $50 refundable deposit, you'll receive the containers, recyclable or compostable bags, instructions for use, and signage.

Sept. 30 Citywide Drop Off Event at Shepard Rd.

Citywide Drop-Off Events are one-day events which allow residents to discard just about anything. District Councils work in partnership with the City to bring together haulers and vendors in one central location and make efforts to reuse or recycle your old stuff for less cost than you would pay a garbage hauler to take it away.

Saturday, Sept. 30 - Shepard Rd, (between Davern St. and Alton St., enter at Alton St.) More Info: Highland District Council at 651-695-4005
