Do you have a prolific lemon tree? Too many zucchinis? Bottled too much jam? Join us for Food Swap at Stackwood, an event which attracts a cornucopia of goods, people and great community vibes.
The food swap is a chance for the community to gather and 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?
- Bring along your produce or offering
- Contribute it to the common collection
- Swap for something that takes your eye
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.
We kick off the swap with some produce from our garden and we have never seen anyone leave empty-handed, so don't be shy about contributing.
In our experience, you will always receive back your share of delicious food, conversation and community feels in-kind (and some!)
- We love home produce but anything edible is welcome, organic and spray free is even better.
- If you don't have any home produce you can still get involved. You might like to bring jam, eggs, a cake you have baked, seeds or even worm wee / compost soil that can help people in the garden.
- If you are making any items (including jams and chutneys) please make sure that you label with all ingredients and best before dates
- There is no limit to how much you can bring, but please make sure you can carry it all with you.
- Let's cut down waste together, bring a box or reusable bag with you for your findings.
- Please don't bring anything that needs to be refrigerated.
- Please don't bring anything expired or on it's way out.
- Children are very welcome (and we encourage you to bring them) but are to be with a guardian at all times.
- Get down early for the best swaps!
