MPLS Swappers: Food Swap Love comes to Minneapolis on March 19!
Posted Mar 08 2011 10:32am
Homemade Jam is the perfect contribution to a Food Swap.
Canning jars and homemade curry powder in hand, I am following the lead of Hip Girl's Guide to Homemakingauthor Kate Payne and Brooklyn Homesteader Meg Pesko. These ladies started the BK Swappers , and contributed to a modern trend of food swaps around the country! Food swaps are a place to trade your homemade, homegrown, and foraged food items with other like-minded folks, and are a great way to share knowledge, build community, and turn home food production into a habit. Truly inspired, I am starting a chapter here in Minneapolis: say hello to the MPLS Swappers . I am so excited, and can hardly wait for our first swap on March 19.
If you live in the Twin Cities area, and would like to join me and other enthusiastic foodies for the first meeting of the MPLS Swappers , all you need to do is register and bring something to swap. Canned goods, a batch of homemade mustard, kombucha SCOBYs, sourdough starters, homemade sauerkraut or kimchee, spice mixes, home-cured meat - the options are endless, and anyone is welcome. I'm excited to meet you!

In order to have the most productive swap possible (and so my brain doesn't explode the first time I'm organizing this), participation is limited to 30 people. Registration is required, and the cost is free.
