Where does your food come from…and what would you do if the trucks stopped rolling and the supermarket shelves started to empty?
Food swaps are a great, resilient and local solution to sharing, learning and generally tuning in to the flows of the seasons and local food production.
Transition Darebin has two food swaps each month.
The Northcote food swap has been around for a long time. Our last swap on Saturday was fantastic with a regular group coming each time and plenty of new people. We had duck eggs massive amounts of tomatoes, chicken eggs and more while Damian also came and brought figs, grapes, tomatoes, pepinos and still more beautiful eggs. There were kombucha scobies and kefir grains swapped and evan a bottle of lime cordial. This is always a great food swap and we’ll be looking to get our seed stocks back up as summer starts to wane and things to go seed.
This food swap runs on the second saturday or every month at 251 High Street Northcote
NEXT SWAP: Saturday 13th March 11-12
The Reservoir Food Swap is the new kid on the block and we’ve had 3 great swaps so far. We are getting a regular crew and a whole load of produce thanks to our uber-gardeners Anthony, Clara, Kate and Damian.
This food swap runs on the third saturday of every month at the corner of broadway and Chedder road, Reservoir.
NEXT SWAP: THIS SATURDAY 21st Feb 10-11
