Croydon Food Swap

Promotes and encourages sustainable gardening

About

The Croydon Food Swap is a local community group for home gardeners to swap their produce with other home gardeners.  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.

So come along and bring your homegrown fruits, vegetables, herbs, seedlings, cuttings, seeds, eggs, honey and anything from the garden, and also homemade items like slices, cakes, chutney, jam, pesto, etc.  And yes, BYO bags/baskets to bring lots more home!  Everyone is welcome to come to the scheduled swap meets.  Please check the Dates page for up-to-date information.  Free entry!

Croydon Food Swap is a Transition Towns Maroondah Inc. initiative and we are now a local group of Permaculture Melbourne (now Permaculture Victoria).  For more info on what this means, please read “Part of a Bigger Picture”.

  1. Does anyone know what a brown patch on the bottom of my tomatoes might be? The tomatoes are still green, but some have a round patch of brown on the bottom. Almost looks like they have been burnt – except you wouldn’t expect them to burn on the bottom! Perhaps a virus?

    • I’ve just read that that could be blossom end rot but I’m not sure what the cause is and how to remedy it. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable can comment?

  2. Looks like a great initiative! I’ve promoted it on my page, Maroondah Yarra Ranges Kids, http://www.facebook.com/maroondahyarrarangeskids We promote things to do and see for families and visitors.
