On Saturday August 22, Sustainable Gardening Australia (SGA) will be holding their first ever fruit and veg/seed swap at the Abbotsford Convent Slow Food Farmer’s Market. If you’ve had a bountiful crop this winter and ended up with more fruit and veg than you know what to do with, they’d love you to come along and take part. Not only is this a great opportunity to show off your skills, but to also chat with with like-minded individuals and to have fun. The aim is to get members like yourself talking and discussing the successes (and failures!) of your efforts in sustainable gardening while sharing your produce as well as your knowledge. It’s also a great opportunity to swap some seeds as Spring approaches.
There will be SGA volunteers heading along to give you the latest happenings on the PODs project – Productive, Organic and Diverse gardening groups. If you have a passion for gardening, want to connect with your community, meet like-minded people and make a genuine difference to the environment, why not get involved? This will be a fantastic opportunity to network and get your own POD up and running!
