WHAT IS A CROP SWAP?


​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.​

HOW DOES A

PLAYNDIRT CROP SWAP WORK?


Playndirt Crop Swaps begin 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.


Produce will be weighed, tables for people to put their goods on. 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.


For larger groups, say 15 or more, we will use a system of swapping that helps keep things courteous. no elbow throwing at playndirt crop swaps
