Our Story

We've loved every minute of our urban homestead journey!

Our Mission

We’re growing a community of self-sufficient, sustainable, nourished households. We aim to educate, inspire, facilitate and promote food security. We encourage environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable ways of reducing hunger and poverty by creating networks of people, providing skill building workshops and facilitating the bartering and trading of home grown food, foraged wild edibles, homemade goods and services.

 


Our Facebook group is where you can post your excess produce, preserves, honey, eggs, homemade items, foraged wild edibles etc.. up for trade. You are able to barter your goods with others for items you are in need of. No money changes hands, just a friendly smile and an exchange of goods.


Our Trade Meets

Come along and attend our monthly Hawkesbury Veggie Barter Trade Meets, where you can trade your goodies, meet like minded people and enjoy a sausage sizzle. Trade meet dates and locations can be found HERE
