Transition Darebin Food Swaps CANCELLED

Hi all,

We are cancelling our 4 food swaps until further notice.  Unfortunately, given the spread of COVID-19 and the need to encourage self-isolation, we can’t safely run these events in public.  Thank you for your understanding.

We encourage you to use social media or other avenues to swap food in your locality by doing porch/nature strip/front gate pickups.

In Gellibrand Crescent in Reservoir there is a little food share project apparently.  They have frequent posts in the Reservoir Good Karma Network on Facebook.

Recent food shares at the front gate and on the nature strip amongst our network were: warrigal greens in Preston, and parsley in Thornbury.

Our relevant Facebook pages are Transition Darebin and Darebin Urban Harvesters.

Thank you for your support during this time; we hope to see you all again.
