I would like some feedback about the swap stall at the Waitakere New Energy Fare. We have been fortunate to have this free venue once a month for Ooooby members and others to meet up and swap their produce etc. People are very receptive to this idea which is really the old barter concept. Over the last year this was mostly manned by myself offering mostly potted plants for sale, as there wasn't much produce around. Lorraine Barnett and Helen Docherty and Daniel Andrews have been very supportive also and have brought along things to swap. Daniel made an Ooooby banner. Although I have posted the information most months on both the Waitakere & Titirangi sites, few Ooooby members have come to swap or to offer to man the stand, and the general public have good intentions of remembering to bring something to swap, but mostly don't remember. This month (21 February) I won't be manning it as I am busy preparing for a wedding the following weekend at our property. Litsa who organises the Fare would love the swap stall to continue, but if it is just me offering plants every month, it is not going to be very interesting. Now is a time when we all have produce in our vege gardens, so how about getting involved (it's only once a month!). Litsa is also considering opening it up to a clothes swap stall, and that would be fun for us ladies anyway. You always get to meet some lovely like minded people, and to go home with some goodies to eat or plant. Give Litsa the heads up with your support, or should I say Use it, or Lose It! Please read other feedback on the Waitakere Members page. Thanks to those Titirangi members who have responded via that page.
