2023 Garden Tool Swap on Saturday, May 13, from 9 a.m. to Noon

May 13, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Attention, gardeners! From seasoned growers to novice seed-sowers, all are welcome at the 3rd annual Minneapolis Garden Tool Swap. Minneapolis Solid Waste & Recycling and community partners are excited to once again offer this free event on Saturday, May 13, 2023, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at seven parks citywide.
As you start Spring cleaning, hang on to unused yard tools, planters, garden décor, books, seeds, and more, and share them with neighbors at the swap. You do not need to bring items to participate. All items donated at the swap are free for any participant to take home. For more event details, visit the City’s Garden Tool Swap web page.
In 2022, over 2,200 items were dropped off and more than 66% of items were taken by the end of the three-hour event. Let’s make this year bigger and better. Let us know you’re coming and invite your friends and loved ones to join.
