Local Back Yard Produce Bartering

September 23rd, 2009

Check out Veggie Trader! A new website that allows you to search for fruits and veggies grown by your neighbors in local back yard gardens. Sign up and you can trade your excess garden vegetables with your neighbors. Yet another way of building a strong local community!

It doesn’t seem like there’s much going on for Asheville yet, but I did my part to help change that by signing up for a Veggie Trader account. If my garden ever manages to produce excess I will be sure to list what I’ve got and hopefully trade with a neighbor for some good stuff that I’m lacking.

Sign up! Eat well! Get to know your neighbors!

    Really cool, thanks for that link. I got a ton of goddies from a neighbor this summer and had nothing to trade so I bought him a giant spiral cut ham. I got the better part of the deal, his tomatoes were awesome.
