SGA Food Swaps

Posted in Events by fga on May 14th, 2010


One gardener’s glut is another gardener’s lunch!

Sustainable Gardening Australia, a not-for-profit, non-government organisation, 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!

The swap meets are run in conjunction with the Abbotsford Convent Slow Food Markets on the fourth Saturday of each month, with the next coming up on the 22nd of May.  From 9.30am, gardeners from Melbourne and surrounds are invited to bring any edible excess along, be it fruit, vegies, nuts, seedlings or seeds and swap it with others.  Not only can gardeners fill their larders in exchange for excess vegies, the SGA Fruit and Vegie Swaps are an exercise in sustainability, waste reduction,  and, most importantly, community connectivity.

WHERE: Abbotsford Convent Slow Food Market. 1 St. Heliers Street, Abbotsford  VIC

WHEN   : Saturday May 22 2010 from 9.30am till 11.00am.  Then 4th Saturday of every month.
