Food swaps

Turn lettuce into tomatoes!

Put some homegrown food on the swap table, and take whatever you think is a fair exchange.

Food Swaps are local gatherings where people  swap excess homegrown produce and gardening extras. There are now 8 across the region organised by various groups.

Food swaps are a way to reduce garden waste, share good produce and create friendships
Food swaps work by an honour system, no need to haggle just make a fair exchange for your produce.

Bring: homegrown fruit, vegetables, herbs, seeds, plants, eggs, homemade jam etc.

Nothing to swap? Excess produce is usually offered for sale after 10:00am.

Meet like-minded people in your community.
