Sustainable Macleod holds a veggie swap on the third Saturday of the month (when restrictions allow) at the Rotunda in Macleod.
We invite people from the community to come along, bring along excess fruit, veggies, herbs, seeds, plants, eggs, or preserves.
Produce are weighed, recorded, and placed on tables between 11-11.20 Am, while we chat. people choose what they would like to take home, being mindful to ensure everyone receives a fair share.
If you don’t have any excess produce to share, that’s ok come along anyway – you are still welcome to be part of the community and have some produce. You don’t need to be a member to participate.
This event is run by volunteers so assistance setting up and packing up is always appreciated.
