Food Union is launching its first monthly crop swap!

Every month we'll be holding a stall on our CV5 site for allotmenteers and food growers to trade out their excess crop for someone else's glut.

We're not fussed about quantity. Got a spare tomato? Trade it for a squash! Got a basket of apples? Come swap it out for a herb plant! We want to help you reduce your produce waste and whatever is left at the end will be boxed up and taken to a food bank.

Because April is very early into the growing season we're aware people won't have much to swap yet so instead we'll be launching this initiative by giving away germinated crops as future 'Currency'. If you have any excess plants then bring them along to trade or leave them for someone else!

We'll also be joined by The Bedworth Seed Swap who'll be trading and giving away seeds as well.

If you'd like to join us for a coffee and a chat about Food Union we're also up for that!

If you feel you have anything else to offer then please get in touch!
