Whats on?

Foodswaps

Foodswaps are one hour events which take place once a month.

We have three foodswaps running in Darebin

People bring their excess produce and share and swap with others. There are all sorts of goodies ready to swap from back yards across Darebin.

What to bring?– seedlings, greens, citrus, or even something you have made like jams, baked goods and much more 

So come along to one of our food swaps and exchange something that you have in abundance for something someone else has been growing in their garden, super fresh produce at its best!

Reservoir Food Swap – every month on the 3rd Saturday at 10am outside Reservoir Library.

Fairfield Food Swap every month on the 3rd Saturday at 11am at the cnr of Duncan and Gillies st, Fairfield

Thornbury/Preston Food swap at 11am on 4th Saturday of the month at Thornbury Picture House

Darebin Repair Cafe

Darebin Repair cafe runs every second month at various locations around Darebin.  

It is a three hour event where our volunteer fixers share their fixing skills with cafe visitors e.g. sewing, craft, jewellery repairs, gluing, and electrical work in household appliances.

We are part of the International Repair Cafe Foundation.
