Community Crop Swaps


Community Crop swaps are a way for neighbors to exchange what they’re growing in their community gardens and homes. 

The swap focuses on fruits, veggies, and herbs – but many also invite neighbors to bring potted plants, seedlings, seeds to share. Join the different swaps’ online communities linked below (there’s some great advice to swap, too) – or just show up and see what it’s all about and get inspired!
