More information about this community event that inspires sustainability through creating and sharing.
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.
