ADOPT-A-PLANT / GREEN-SHARE
"you call, you dig, you haul, thats all"
Updated most every day with new offerings, access to the Adopt-A-Plant list is a
PlantAmnesty membership benefit. And now we've added GREEN SHARE! It works like Adopt-A-Plant,
but it's about accessories. That's right! It's not just about plants any more, it's also about all those important
accessories for your garden.
Members get first dibs choosing which of these orphans to add to their gardens.
Though anyone may list plants for adoption -- and we hope you will -- the Adopt-A-Plant list is
password protected for members.
Members, LOG IN for the most up-to-date ADOPT-A-PLANT LIST!
If you're not a PlantAmnesty member and wish to join now, we'll supply the password with your welcome
letter. Other membership benefits, you ask? Indeed!
- Our quarterly newsletter chock full of pruning tips, interesting stories and other amusements

Shrubs and trees over 10-12 feet tall are most often too big to move
privately. If you have a tree that is a better candidate for removal
than for Adopt-A-Plant, the PlantAmnesty

Introducing GREEN SHARE!
Do you have a composter you don’t need any more? Too many tools filling up your shed?
Are you just dying for that special plant that you would be willing to make a trade for?
Do you need used bricks for your patio project? Then our Green-Share is just the ticket for you.
It works just like our Adopt-a-Plant list.

To kick off Green-Share, we want you to know that many businesses now offer plastic nursery pot recycling
to their customers. Please be sure pots are dry and stacked by size. There is no need to wash pots, but please
remove all dirt and debris. Many sites accept plastic garden trays as well. To see a list of businesses that
will recycle pots, go to www.re-sources.org and click on Waste Reduction Programs, then on Horticultural Recycling.
