Did you get any seeds today?

Taking advantage of a beautiful spring day in the Mountains, we hit Glenbrook village and Faulconbridge streets today with packets of seeds to let people know about the Crop & Swap. Did anyone get any seeds? If you plant now, whatever you're growing could be ready for our first swap in Nov.We had a a really fun day, and were encouraged by the conversations. It seems there's a real appetite for homegrown fruit and veggies.

And besides, it gave us an excuse to chat to people we might not of otherwise. We met one of the staff at Jazz Apple  Cafe in Glenbrook, who moved to the Mountains in Feb and was excited about the Crop & Swap to get to know people locally.

(editors note: she was much friendlier than the German Shepherd guarding its letter box in Faulconbridge).

Happy growing!
