The Outer Eastern Permaculture Swap (formerly Croydon Food Swap) is a local community group for anyone and everyone to swap their home and garden produce with others. This helps to promote fresh local food that has a low carbon footprint while being able to swap excess harvests for something different. The swap provides a time and place for like-minded people to share ideas and tips, and to encourage one another in their quest to be sustainable. Through food (and food related processes), we become a part of a connected, flourishing community.
So come along and bring your ‘stuff’ to swap. If it’s good enough for you, it’s good enough to swap. If you’re unsure about what the ‘stuff’ should be, please read the FAQs or contact us. And yes, BYO bags/baskets to bring lots more ‘stuff’ home! Everyone is welcome to come to the scheduled swap meets. Please check the Dates page for up-to-date information. Free entry!
Outer Eastern Permaculture Swap is a Transition Towns Maroondah Inc. initiative and our events and activities are run under the auspice of Eastern Suburbs Permaculture Group which is a local group of Permaculture Melbourne (now Permaculture Victoria).
