The Good Food Swap
The idea behind the swap, which marks the tenth birthday of Growing Communities, is simple – participants turn up with food they’ve made, grown, picked or even bought, register it and are given a number to wear. The food is put on display, like an “urban village fete”, says Rankin. And then – this is where the competition comes in – everyone wanders around with a pad and pencil, noting down what they like the look of.
A few years back PTF was first to conceive and host a 100 Mile Community Potluck here in Los Angeles. Now, we are seeing other local organizations have followed our lead — every one’s doing it!
This year we are growing forth and setting a new trend.
On a technical note about the Freedom Garden website: we will be adding some cool features in the next few weeks. One will allow FGers to connect and meetup to share and swap. Stay tuned.
