Last Friday, we hosted a plant swap at the beautiful parklet in front of our Solano Avenue location in North Berkeley. We had a blast sharing clippings, seeds, gardening books, and plants (of course!) with our community.

Zachary’s is an employee owned company via our ESOP. We have an ESOP Committee that is comprised of nine employee owners from all locations. Our ESOP Committee has a two part mission: One, educate our crew and our customers about employee ownership at Zachary’s, and two, create space for employee owners to build community and grow together. The plant swap was one event in a series of workshops based on our employee owners’ interests.
