The next food swap will be on Saturday March 24, from 11 to 12 pm.  It can be found at the corner of Oakover Road and High St, South Preston (outside the op shop, either at the front in the garden or out the back if shade is needed or if it’s raining)

Food Swaps are an occasion to meet your community, talk about gardens and sustainability and swap excess produce from your garden, or something you made in your kitchen. You bring some and get to take some away as with all good swaps.

Ideas of what to bring:

  • seeds from your garden
  • seedlings
  • fruit
  • vegetables
  • herbs
  • preserves
  • cordials
  • sour dough starter

The list goes on…
