Buy your groceries without spending any money
Lots of councils across Sydney regularly run "crop swaps" which give locals the opportunity to swap their home grown/made produce with someone else's for free. This is an economical initiative which helps prevent food wastage and encourages organic and urban farming.

If you're like me and are always handing out bags of home grown mint to friends, then this is a great way to swap your excess herbs, fruit, jams, bread, flowers, eggs or other produce for something you really need.*

Hornsby Shire Council's Crop and Swap is running on Saturday 11 January from 10am and no money will be exchanged. Come in early as all items will first be displayed before everyone has the chance to take something they need. Bring at least one quality item bundled and labelled with a basket or blanket to display it on.

You can register by sending an email addressed to or simply come along on the day.

*Non-alcoholic items only. No refrigerated items or pre-cut fruit and vegetables.
