Swap Shuffle Share The Website Connecting Food Gardeners Across Australia

 

Swap Shuffle Share
"The Website Connecting Food Gardeners Across Australia"
By Natasha Kuperman, Founder



Swap Shuffle Share provides an online community for food gardeners to share their knowledge, ideas, inspiration and their excess produce with other members. It was launched on January 26, 2012 and can be found at www.swapshuffleshare.com

The idea for the site developed while planning my own edible garden, I came across many wonderful resources online, but the real knowledge was found in the comments and discussions following articles. It highlighted the richness of collective knowledge that was available, but it was fragmented and sometimes difficult to find. Creating a site that is built and reliant on the questions, answers, interests and experience of its members provides a growing database of knowledge in a single location for others interested in urban food production.

Growing your own produce is rewarding, reduces food miles and assists in our communities becoming more self sustainable and less reliant on larger commercial suppliers. It also has the ability to connect with your local community and this can be as informal as sharing produce with your neighbours, or at an organised food swap, joining a local gardening or permaculture group or gardening at one of the many community garden sites across Australia. Our site provides the information to help members get involved, and encourage others to join our backyard revolution.

Membership to Swap Shuffle Share is free. Members can create groups and get involved with existing groups. We have a directory section where members can list items for sale, swap or exchange, job positions and jobs wanted, business listings, food swaps, local markets and community gardens. The events list is growing and searchable by dates and state. We also have an articles and recipe section that members can contribute to. As the site membership grows and more information is submitted, we hope the site will become an essential resource for all Australian food gardeners.

To join and contribute to the conversation, visit www.swapshuffleshare.com and register as a member.
