The one I visited this weekend is Croydon Food Swap which is held at a local primary school amongst their kitchen garden. I forgot to take a photo of this beautiful location but hopefully I will remember next month! It was a lot smaller than the first one but this one hasn't been running as long. Given it is winter as well, a lot of people feel they don't have excess to swap. I found it quite difficult to find out about swaps in the first place and really think the local council should get on board and really help promote these great community groups and events. I met some lovely fellow gardeners and swapped some equally lovely produce!
This is what I took along ~
|Zucchini, Maltese long marrow and some pumpkin.|
|Parsley and some dried chili|
|bay leaves, green feast peas and broad bean seeds|
This is what I got in return ~
|Tiny hot chilis|
