Building Communities by Swapping Vegetables

The Squash and Bean Swap is a project by Bandstand Beds – a collective of growing enthusiasts working in the Bandstand area of London’s Clapham Common – aiming to use that Springtime window of opportunity in the growing calendar for community-building. Participants in the Swap come from a range of growing organisations in the London Borough of Lambeth, joining together at key points in the growing process to swap seeds, seedlings, and fully grown produce.
