“Crop & Swap was founded in 2016 as a community group based around making the most of the surpluses we have of seasonal produce in our backyard gardens,” says one of the founders, Angie Ritchie.
“The group has grown into a beautiful sharing of knowledge, ideas, recipes, produce, flowers, baking and preserves, and expanded to Gerringong.
“People bring what they can, and take what they can use. It’s not about taking things of equal value each time – it all works out in the end.
“Come along and join in.”
Kiama meets on the second Saturday of the month, and Gerringong the fourth Saturday, at the community garden behind Gerringong Bowling Club, 9am.
Details: The next Kiama gathering is 11 May, at Burnetts On Barney,
80 Barney Street Kiama at 9.30am. Enquiries to Angie on 0403 134 813
