Event description
A community event that inspires sustainability through creating and sharing.

About this Event

Are you a seasoned or newbie maker of home produce and homewares inspired by sustainability and zero waste and want to share your story with others. If so, then BarterJar is the community event you've been waiting for. Bring your creations along and for each one you bring you will receive a different one in return - the more you bring the more you take home but items that are different, and perhaps more useful to you.

You can bring almost anything to a BarterJar event. The only requirement is that you have made it yourself, with some of the ingredients being home grown and/or locally/ethically sourced and that you keep in mind BarterJar’s tag line, ‘swapping fruits of the earth, blended with a touch of heart and a sprinkle of art’

Keep in mind that each item should have a perceived value of between $5 and $10. This is purely to assist portioning up your home produce so that everyone comes to the table as equally as possible.

Ideas for swaps include but are not limited to jams, preserves, chutneys, fermented products, bread, honey, beer, cordials, soaps, cosmetics, potions, pastries and cakes, eggs, beeswax wraps, produce bags, beanies, arts and crafts, seedlings, plants. If you have a query on the produce you want to bring just ask! The more creative, the better.

Karen Sutherland from Edible Eden Design will be joining BarterJar to share her experience and stories about home growing, seed saving and getting the most from any garden space. Guests will be invited to talk about their produce and ask Karen’s advice to help solve any garden problems!

Growing up in a family of gardeners and farmers, Karen has grown her own food since she could wield a shovel and devoted her working life to gardening. For the last 10 years her focus has been on helping others to grow their own food, mostly in urban situations, through her teaching, writing and speaking. Her own garden has over 200 edible plants including 40 natives. Her first book, Tomato; Know Sow Grow Feast was released last year with co-authors Penny Woodward and Janice Sutton.

This event is proudly supported by Darebin Arts.
