Yet more food swap news

The more one investigates, the more food swaps one finds. Here are two more:

  • Northcote: 2nd Saturday of each month, 11am-midday.
  • Reservoir: 3rd Saturday of each month, 10-11am.

Both swaps are organised by Transition Darebin, with the Reservoir swap being new this month.

Corrections and clarifications

The guided tours of Cara’s garden are on Sunday, 6th December, not Saturday, 12th December. Maybe my fingers got confused between Gregorian and Julian calendars. Sorry, Cara.
