We meet 3rd Sunday (unless there are special events) of every month. So come along and bring your ‘stuff’ to swap.
If it’s good enough for you, it’s good enough to swap.
Who can attend?
Everyone is welcome to come the permaculture swap meets. The swap meet is family and kids friendly - we remind parents to please take extra care and attention to keep an eye on the kids (and pets) as they can get very excited with all the produce and interesting things on offer.
What can I bring?
The usual things are excess home grown produce such as vegetables, fruits and herbs that are in season. But anything home grown, home baked, preserved or reared (and more) are good to swap. As long as it’s good enough for yourself, it’s good enough to swap. For example, at one swap we may have plums, pears, apples, lemons, limes, beans, tomatoes, potatoes, rhubarb, rosemary, sage, vietnamese mint, kale, zucchinis, chillies, milk kefir grains, kombucha, used coffee grounds, horse manure, worm tea, morning glory plants, basil plants, bread, muffins, chicken and quails eggs, jams and chutneys, pesto, magazines, plant pots, bamboo canes…the list goes on.
How to label your produce:
For fresh produce, just a slip of paper with what it is, will do. For preserves and other processed food, it will be helpful to have the ingredients listed and preferably the date it was produced.
What if there’s nothing in season from my garden, can I still attend?
You might like to bake some muffins or make some sushi or a refreshing cordial on a hot summer’s day! Or look around your home and yard, you never know you might find something useful that someone else can use. Please come even if you have very little to swap as we understand garden produce ebbs and flows with the seasons, sometimes you have a lot, sometimes a little. The swap is more than just a barter network, it is a grassroots based local community promoting permaculture and sustainable living.
Come and have a chat and usually, we have plenty of excess from generous swappers.
You will definitely make a few friends and exchange gardening tips and more.
