Crop Swaps are friendly free-exchange events for backyard gardeners to share their produce, seedlings, seeds and knowledge.
Bring your excess fresh produce, seeds, seedlings or cuttings along to share with others. Don’t have anything to bring? No problem! Come along anyway, meet some friendly local gardeners and take some treats home.
Palmy Crop Swap
The Palmy Crop Swap runs monthly on the second Sunday of each month at the Awapuni Community Centre, 22 Newbury Street, from 1:30pm-2:30pm.
The Awapuni Community Garden is behind the hall. Any leftover seedlings are immediately planted in the ACG after the swap events so nothing goes to waste!

RECAP also holds refular crop swaps out in Ashhurst, usually once a month. Check out their Facebook Page to see what is coming up.
Foxton Crop Swap
2nd Sunday of the month. Foxton School Hall 2-3pm.
Bring along any surplus garden produce that you would like to share, and take home something someone else has grown that you would like.
