|Preston/Thornbury Food Swap

|The corner of High St and Pender St, Thornbury.
At the swaps a group of people meet regularly to swap veggies, fruit, herbs, eggs, seeds, seedlings and homemade produce such as chutneys, jams and soap. You bring something and get to take something away, as with all good swaps.
Food swaps are a great way to swap excess food, meet local folks, talk about gardening and sustainability, and just generally get some hints, information and a little food. Find us on Darebin Urban Harvesters and Transition Darebin Facebook pages plus the Transition Darebin website.
Ideas of what to bring:
- seeds from your garden
- sour dough starter
Any leftovers are given to people who are on low incomes or organisations who provide for people on low incomes, eg Lentil as Anything in Preston.
We look forward to seeing you at a local Transition Darebin swap soon!
