Normanville Natural Resource Centre Fruit & Veggie Swap
EAT, GROW, SHARE AND CONNECT
– these are the aims of a Veggie Swap. A place where people come together and swap their surplus produce in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere while catching up with old friends and making new ones.
There is no selling involved, it is all about sharing, run on an honour system. Goods are simply spread out together and then attendees select what they want and need, roughly in proportion to their contribution.
By swapping your home grown produce you will add variety to your diet, save money, reduce food miles, eat fresh good quality food, meet new people, gain inspiration and ideas about gardening and cooking, all while working towards a sustainable future.
Some of the items which can be swapped:-
- Fresh home grown fruit and vegetables
- Homemade jams and preserves
- Home dried fruits
- Homemade sauces and chutneys
- Fruit and vegetable seeds, seedlings and cuttings
- Fresh cut flowers
- Gardening books
Anyone can participate who has something to share, whether it be produce, seedlings, recipes, flowers or eggs. Membership will be required which is $5 annually for individuals or $10 for households with all fees going towards helping run the swaps.
It is all about like minded people getting together for a chat over a cuppa, sharing produce and exchanging tips on what to do with all those surplus tomatoes or zucchinis left over at the end of the season.
The Normanville Natural Resource Centre has been successfully holding a local veggie swap from 9.30 am to 10.30 am on the 1st Saturday of each month. If you would like to be involved in this innovative project please contact the Centre on 8558 3644
