Community Garden Exchange
In 2017 the Noarlunga community garden is experimenting with community garden exchanges. Tour the garden and participate in exchanging food or seeds.
The community garden is at Noarlunga Downs Primary School, designated a low SES school. Though many people have limited income, space in Adelaide’s south means many can grow their own food.
In 2017 the community garden has begun experimenting with hosting exchanges, for people to swap surplus items from their own gardens with those from the community garden, or with others. This supports inclusion of those unable to volunteer in the community garden due to commitments at home or work, as well as enhancing community food security. People participating on this tour are encouraged to bring something to swap, such as herbs or seeds, to experience a community garden exchange in action.
