On 19 November 2016 Crop Swap Sydney turned 1! During their first-year hundreds of crop swaps took place between 2 400+ growers.
Not only has Crop Swap helped people grow their own veggies, it has fostered local friendships through the network. It has helped people discover the joy of growing (and eating) healthy homegrown produce. Crop Swap Members have helped people start gardens (for free) and they have hosted 7 events with another 5 scheduled.
Laurie would like to thank Crop Swap members for being a part of a small idea that seems to be making a difference. Crop Swap Sydney welcomes any newcomers who are keen to start growing and sharing!
