Playndirt Crop Swaps began at a local park (Huntington Park) and a community garden (City Farm), no money changes hands, and everyone can go home with different fruits, vegetables, or herbs for their families. While the actual cash-free transactions can take place in mere minutes, in some cases, people normally linger long after the produce exchanges have taken place to visit with new friends, hang out with neighbors, and pick up some pointers on cooking the goodies they scored.
Please bring your own bag or basket. Participants are given a chance to cruise the merchandise, as it were, and then exchanges take place, typically in an informal fashion if it's a small gathering, with people simply picking up what looks good to them and popping it into their own
bags and baskets.
Fruits and vegetables grown from your garden, plants, fresh cut flowers, seeds, fresh eggs, garden tools, honey, scions, homemade jams(produce from your garden or from a crop swap), garden ideas & techniques, YOUR TIME, volunteer at our garden. Picking up debris outside our garden, pruning, weeding, planting.

Backyard, frontyard, sideyard, rooftop gardeners and urban homesteaders are coming together to share their produce in increasingly popular local meet-ups known as crop swaps, where neighbors exchange, say, beets and greens for apples and squash. Some crop swaps include trades for honey, eggs, flowers, and preserved or prepared foods, too.
