Great turnout for the first Gawler Garden and Produce Share
Saturday morning was such an uplifting and socialable gathering for the first Gawler Garden and Produce Share. I spent the moring roaming the garden for excess produce that was ready for picking, in the hope that I would swap it for something else that I’m not currently growing.
After bundling my produce together the kids and I jumped on our bikes and headed down to Apex Park on Julian Terrace and met up with other backyard growers for a lovely chat and food swap.
Well done to Heather Brown, Vanessa Henly and Jill Young for getting this great initiative up and running.
I managed to swap my rocket, parsley, oranges and chillie sauce for some duck eggs, quince jelly, spinach and kale and a jar of honey. Score!!
I’m really looking forward to next share in a months time (the last Saturday of every month in winter). If anyone has rhubarb I’ll be looking for some. In fact Vanessa and Heather have started using the Transition Gawler facebook chat page as a place to list what you have to share or what you might be looking for. It was all so easy, friendly and no maney changing hands.
