The first local Garden Swap was held August 21,2010, with people coming together to share produce, chat and get to know one another. Four other events followed where home gardeners met for a free exchange of garden bounty. Here is one guest’s rave review: “What a great event, like a free farmers’ market – grapes and raspberries and oranges and two types of apples, sage and oregano and rosemary and thyme, sorrel and a plethora of tomatoes, seeds to save and plant, and some beautiful flowers. Thank you!” – Rani
Sunday, May 22 will be the kick off event for the 2011 season.
Join us to share garden bounty. Bring what you have to share; take home something you don t. Think of it as a free backyard farmers market. (And if you can’t find what you’re looking for, the California Ave. Farmer’s Market is happening concurrently.)
Bring your homegrown fruit, vegetables, eggs, herbs, honey, flowers, seeds, & plant seedlings!
Throughout the Bay Area, neighbors are coming together for sharing locally grown, fresh produce. Our Palo Alto sharing event is supported by a coalition of community ecological organizations and neighborhood groups including: Acterra, Barron Park Green Team, Barron Park Garden Network, Barron Park Assn., Common Ground Garden Supply & Education Center, City of Palo Alto Community Gardens, Slow Food South Bay, and Transition Palo Alto.
