Home Gardener Produce Exchange/Donation returns

Produce exchange

 

What:  Join us again for our local project to redistribute homegrown produce and eliminate food waste.  It is an opportunity to trade surplus items from your garden for something you don’t have.  You may also bring produce that you have gleaned (with permission of course) from a neighbor’s yard.  Plant starts are welcome for sharing and trading.  At the end of the exchange period, all left over produce will be donated to a food recovery partner.

Update: This year, we’ll be wearing face masks and keeping at least a 6-foot distance between each of us. Please put on clean gloves or sanitize your hands prior to unloading your starts/produce and when you are packed up to leave the exchange. Please follow the directions of the exchange host when putting out your starts/produce and when looking for items you would like to take.
We encourage gardeners to plant extra so that we are able to donate produce throughout the season to our local food pantries and community members who are in need of healthy food.
