How Can I Get Involved?
This page showcases grass roots initiatives that have flourished spreading kindness and generosity through our communities. From Community Food Swaps and Edible Exchanges to volunteer and educational programs, or just learning how to productively grow food and sharing it when you can, we can all make a difference!
Community Food Swaps Once a month, local gardeners get together to swap home grown produce, plants, preserves and baked goods. No money changes hands, just plenty of smiles and wonderful local gardening advice. Our local swap is at the park on a Saturday morning and it has been an invaluable resource for meeting like minded gardeners and real growers who know their stuff.
Edible Exchanges are popping up across Brisbane. These exchanges allow communities to swap their excess produce and plants. It is an honesty exchange system, with a publicly accessible cart where produce is traded. No money changes hands, just a lot of yummy produce.
For those who heard us on the ABC radio national and are looking to get involved. Here are some links to local exchanges:
