It’s Food Swap time again at Stackwood! Following our first swap event which attracted a cornucopia of goods, people and great community vibes, we are again hosting a swap this coming October.
Do you have a prolific lemon tree? Too many zucchinis? Make your own worm juice? Bottled too much jam? Bring your excess homegrown produce to swap this October!
The swap kicks off at 10am, with a free demonstration at 11am by Kym from Stocked Foods on how to make an easy and tasty gluten-free granola mix at home. Stocked Foods will also have all of their gluten-free pantry items available for purchase if you missed out at the last market.
Stacked Cafe will be open, serving up delicious coffee and snacks from 8am.
What is a food swap?
A food swap is a community gathering where people swap their excess homegrown produce. Items like fruit and vegetables, herbs, eggs, seeds and worm juice are welcome. You may even swap produce for gardening tips or recipes!
How does it work?
Food swaps are money free exchanges and operate as an honesty system. The concept is simple; swappers supply their own produce and then ‘shop’ from the selection of goods provided by others.
What if I don't have any homegrown produce?
You might like to bake something for the swap, raid your nearest rosemary bush or ask your neighbour for some lemons. If you are making any items (including jams and chutneys) please make sure that you label with all ingredients and best before dates. Please do not bring items that need to be refrigerated.
Food Swap will run Saturday 27th of October 10am - 12pm with a FREE demonstration at 11am by Kym from Stocked Foods on how to make an easy and tasty gluten-free granola mix at home. This is a FREE event for community benefit.
