The Food Swap
10am to 12pm

We will also be hosting a community Food Swap. What is a Food Swap?
A food swap is an event where members of a community share homemade, homegrown, or foraged foods with each other. Swaps allow direct trades to take place between attendees, e.g., a loaf of bread for a jar of pickles or a half-dozen backyard eggs. These events are a delicious way to diversify the homemade foods in your own pantry while getting to know members of your local food community.

Registration is required to participate in the Food Swap. Sign up HERE!

The Plant/Seed Swap
12pm to 2pm
We will also be hosting a Plant and Seed Swap. If you are interested, please bring your extra seeds, transplants, seedlings, canes, root stock, potted plants, clippings, etc and come swap! Make sure all seeds and plants are labeled so other swappers know what they are. This will be a casual exchange (no registration necessary). Bring baggies/envelopes/containers for seeds, Locavore will provide markers and some seed envelopes.
