Seedy Sunday presents the Homegrown Food Swap this Sunday

Seedy Sunday is thrilled to be working with the Kāpiti Coast District Council to bring the Homegrown Food Swap to the Sustainable Home & Garden Show.

The Homegrown Food Swap gives gardeners the chance to swap their spare fresh produce. It’s a great opportunity to swap your extra zucchinis for beans, or your lemons for someone else’s carrots. Maybe you have too many parsley seedlings – bring some down on the day.

Check in from 1.00 - 3.30pm

When people come in they can ‘check-in’ items that they wish to swap, receiving tokens in return. There will be someone sorting what is brought into divisions and deciding on the amount of tokens to be given in exchange.

Suggestions for a ‘token’ would be a head of lettuce, a potted vege seedling, a potted herb cutting, a bunch of fresh herbs, a couple of lemons etc.

From 2.00pm the Swap Table will be open for swapping.

There will be a section for spray-free produce.  Any items not swapped will be donated to the Kāpiti Food Bank.

The Fine Print:
  • Tokens have no monetary value and are only valid at the swap. Tokens cannot be redeemed or exchanged once the event is over.
  • Amounts will be generalised at the whim of the organisers.
  • All items are as is, where is. SSK takes no responsibility for incorrectly-labelled items, sudden plant death or viability problems.
  • We do this for love, we do this for community - so please be kind.
