What is the Community Harvest & Seed Trade?
This event is an opportunity for community members to trade their homegrown, homemade, foraged foods and seeds. Participants will make direct trades with one another. For example, one participant may trade their jar of homemade blackberry jam for a basket of tomatoes. The options are endless.

Anyone and everyone! Just bring your homegrown, homemade, foraged foods and seeds to the event for trading.

Is there a cost?
Absolutely not. This event is made possible with funding from the City of Vancouver's Greenest City Grant.

What should participants bring to the trade?
Bring items such as vegetables, fruits, backyard chicken eggs, preserves, jams, pickles, herbs or spices. As long as items are homegrown, homemade, foraged foods and/ or seeds they will be accepted! As a health and safety precaution, meats and cheeses are not swapable items.

As much as I would like to attend this event in my village, I have already scheduled to attend a beekeeping symposium out in Langley.
