An Urban Orchard

Shot in and around Adelaide, South Australia


The first South Australian homegrown and gleaned produce swap was held on Saturday 3 November 2008, at the Clarence Park Community Centre. The Urban Orchard is a homegrown fruit and vegetable exchange, enjoying a brisk trade and much discussion over the morning.

The Urban Orchard is based on the exchange of backyard fruit and vegetable surplus. Participation is open to everyone, and participants are invited to take produce when they can use it, and contribute when they can.

The Urban Orchard is an initiative of Friends of the Earth Adelaide and the Goodwood Goodfood Co-op.

When: 10.00am-12noon, first Saturday of the month.

Location: Clarence Park Community Centre, 72-74 East Avenue, Black Forest
