Come along and share fresh produce from your garden or something freshly made from your kitchen. The kind of things people bring along are: leafy greens and parsley when they are in season, silverbeat seedlings, seeds, worm juice, loquats and hot chilli’s,  and lots of other fruits and veggie’s that they have grown themselves. Alternatively you could bring along chutneys, jams, preserves, baking and sour dough starter. So if your garden is looking tired, or you don’t have a garden but like to talk about food bring something you have made, it will most likely get eaten as we are chatting.

We are an all season group, so even if our gardens don’t have a lot of produce on the go through the winter season, we still meet up for a catch up and a chat. So come on down and join us at one of our swaps, or both, you would be very welcome.
