With all the gardens in bloom around the neighborhood, it sure would be nice if we could somehow swap what we had extra of for what we had extra appetite for.
We can! This Tuesday, there’s a Backyard Barter and BBQ in Meridian Park from 6 – 8 pm:
Simply, Backyard Barter is a community where neighbors barter locally produced food, related skills and items like seedlings, eggs, extra produce, canned goods, the use of garden tools, expertise in garden construction and design, and a helping hand with food-related projects.
Participants are encouraged to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and bring a side or something for the grill, as well as items for barter.
The Backyard Barter program is a project of Seattle Tilth, but is funded in part by the Neighborhood Matching Fund. Hopefully, that gets you thinking about all the other ideas that might benefit from applying to that fund.
