Do you have lemons rotting on the ground in your back yard?

Do you have more zucchinis than you can give away?

Are your chooks laying more eggs than you can eat?

Do you need help harvesting your otherwise wasted fruit?

Would you like an opportunity to discuss your successes (and failures!) with other gardeners in the community?

Then come along to our fruit, veg and home-grown produce swap!


9 to 10.30 a.m. on the first Saturday of every month


At SpringDale Neighbourhood Centre, High Street, Drysdale.


The aim is to encourage sustainable gardening in the community and provide access to fresh local seasonal produce.


The swap operates on an honesty system: bring what you want, take what you feel is a fair exchange.


You can bring home-grown fruit and veg, home-made preserves and cordials, home-baked cakes or bread (list ingredients on a label please), eggs from your chooks, surplus seeds and seedlings, potted herbs. Edibles only please - no flowers etc.

How much?

Membership is $20 per year per household. Benefits include monthly email newsletter, admission to workshops and demos and membership (for one person) of SpringDale Neighbourhood Centre.
