Event Description

You're welcome whether you have something to trade or not!

Are you a keen gardener, producing fresh produce for your family and friends, and have something to swap or trade? Then join us as at Logan Food Gardeners' first ever Community Crop Swap. Book a spot by phoning Norma on 0409 273 411 or email mail@loganfoodgardeners.org. You don't need much to book a spot, half a bucket of mangoes could give you a great trade.

Are you excited by markets, enjoy the chance to bargain and haggle? Then bring your family and friends (a smile and some small change) to our 2014 Community Crop Swap.

Contact your friends and encourage them to bring come along to this undercover event for a fun chance to snare a bargain and catch up with other food gardeners. 

What can you bring to trade? Your home grown produce, home made preserves or baked goods, seedlings, food plants, other food gardening related items. Remember you are responsible to store food items appropriately (in eskies etc) so they won't spoil. Providing testers for tasting is a great idea.  Please arrive before 8:30am if you are trading.

Logan Food Gardeners will also be selling a variety of vegetable seedlings for fundraising. If you would like to grow seedlings for the stall or help out on the day click here.

What can I expect, when I come? We especially hope you'll come (and invite your friends) if you have nothing to swap/trade, so you can purchase items on the day. Stallholders will set an indicative price for their goods but are happiest if they can swap or trade items with others.

Demonstrations There will be a demonstration every 30 minutes. Topics include: how to set up a worm farm, growing micro greens, pH testing and alternative ways to make jam.

Cost? Gold coin entry for both visitors and people trading.

Need more information? Logan Food Gardeners runs Crop Swaps every two months. For information about how Crop Swaps operate, check out the most recent event post. For background about how the club's Crops Swaps originated, read the associated discussion.

Look forward to seeing your happy smile on the 29th March!
