Mt Tamborine Food Exchange

20 July, 2022 Food Action0

My Great Notion of the Week this week is the Mount Tamborine Edible Exchange shared by Wavy.

It’s an honour system where people can bring food to the central roadside exchange and take food away. No money changes hands. They post pictures online so everyone knows what’s in the food exchange. There’s pictures and more details on

Wavy submitted that as a contribution to my Make and Taste sessions designed to get different people in a workplace sharing food with their colleagues and showing how they make it. However we activate our food networks, the important thing is that sharing food disengages us from being nodes of consumption and converts us into hubs of production. Now that’s a great notion.
