AUS: Have Fun at a Food Swap

All around Australia, fruit and vegie swaps are taking off like never before, and they offer a real solution for that lorry load of lemons going to waste at your place. These are generally non-commercial events (meaning no money changes hands), and many fruit and veggie swaps will allow swapping other types of items as well, from worm wee to chutney, and chook poo to cackleberries.  Sustainable Gardening Australia has kicked off a series of fruit and vegie swap meets, an opportunity for the gardeners of Melbourne to meet once a month, share their extra produce with people who will appreciate it and swap their bounty of broccoli for another grower’s excess of eggplants. Mary Trigger with the SGA says this is a giant step forward towards urban sustainability. (Source: sgaonline.org.au)
