Low Cost and Free Food…….. Transition Streets 3.15

There are many ways to get low cost and free fruit and vegetables.

The most basic is guerrilla gardening – cultivating otherwise unused spaces, and establishing food gardens and edible forests.

There are also organised systems of sharing excess produce – like Spare Harvest and Ripe Near Me.  

You can also search for native plants in public spaces, gather edible weeds, and harvest fruit hanging over footpaths – 

and there is the more extreme dumpster diving – though the fans love it – Let Them Eat Bin Cake
