An initiative of Sustainable Communities SA, Essential Edibles Urban Orchard takes place on the 1st Sunday of each month from 9am at Joslin Reserve, with the food swap at 10am.
If you have more produce in your garden than you can possibly eat then why not share it with the locals? No cash changes hands – it is all about sharing, a way to reconnect with community and mostly about generosity.
Things you may like to share and swap: fruit & vegetables; herbs; flowers;
plants, seeds, cuttings & seedlings; preserves, jams, etc – or just come along for a chat and to swap some stories. Sometimes we even share a cuppa!
You don’t have to have anything to swap or share. There is always enough to go around. We want to reduce food miles, food waste and fuel use and promote social networks within our ever growing and sometimes isolating community. So feel free to just come along for a chat and to soak up the atmosphere.
