Food Swaps

Food Swap

Darebin now has 3 food swaps on the go.  Here are the variety of swaps you can choose from  (and you can go to more than one if you want!):

NameDate and TimeLocation
Reservoir Food Swap3rd Saturday of the month, 10 to 11 amIn front of the library on Edwardes St, Reservoir
Fairfield Food Swap3rd Saturday of the month, 11 to 12 noonThe corner of Gillies and Duncan Sts, Fairfield (in the side garden facing Duncan St)
Preston/Thornbury Food Swap4th Saturday of the month, 11 to 12 noonThornbury Picture House – the corner of High St and Pender St, Thornbury.

At the swaps, a group of people meet regularly to swap veggies, fruit, herbs, eggs, seeds, seedlings and homemade produce such as chutneys, jams and soap.  You bring something and get to take something away, as with all good swaps.

Fruit Squad

Food swaps are a great way to swap excess food, meet local folks, talk about gardening and sustainability, and just generally get some hints, information and a little food. Find us on Darebin Urban Harvesters and Transition Darebin Facebook pages plus the Transition Darebin website.

Ideas of what to bring:

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

Any leftovers are given to people who are on low incomes or organisations who provide for people on low incomes, eg Lentil as Anything in Preston.

Please note our Northcote Food Swap, which ran for many years, is now in hibernation, so we can focus on our other swaps.

We look forward to seeing you at a local Transition Darebin swap soon!
