We are trialing our first Garden and Produce Share this Sunday at the local Stirling Square Markets – Guildford.

Come share your excess seeds, seedlings, cuttings, produce, etc.

We’ll have excess garlic, herbs and second grade fruit from a local orchard to share. Please come along and feel free to add to the produce and take a few goodies home.

If you don’t have something to share, don’t stress. Everyone is welcome. Early bird catches the worm (and gets more garlic! 😉

If you ride to the market on your bike, you’ll also get a $10 voucher to spend at the markets (this is a bike week initiative by the EMRC)
