Crop & Swap Culinary Challenge

Rhubarb champagne by Melanie & Alexander

We hope everyone has had a great summer holidays and your crops have survived the downpours and occasional bursts of heat!

After last Crop & Swap, Amber & Peter mentioned they try to use all the things they receive from the swap in dinner that night. So that got us thinking…’s time for our inaugural ‘Crop & Swap Culinary Challenge’.

So much of the fun in what we do, is in enjoying what we receive while it’s fresh and hearing all the stories

So here’s how the challenge will work:

1. Come along to Crop & Swap this Saturday 11 Feb, and swap ‘till you drop
2. Whatever goods you walk away with, use as much as possible in dinner that night
3. Share your stories - email stories & photo’s to or upload as a comment to this blog post
4. We’ll then collect all the stories and publish them in the share barrow (Crop & Swap newsletter) which will be out again in March.

And no Saturday night dinner will be complete without Melanie & Alexander’s rhubarb champagne. Get your aprons ready…The challenge is on!

We’ll look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday.

With neighbourly cheer,
Steve, Annemaree, Jo & Joe
