7 years ago I saw a local community that pulls together, I wanted to also offer some thing to my community. That’s when I started the Dayboro Edible Exchange.
Dayboro Edible Exchange is open 24/7 it’s a place where you can drop off and pick up locally grown food and food related products at no cost.
I find our exchange has enhanced our community it’s not only providing food to families, it connects community, reduces mental health ( I’ve had several person messages over the years people saying they are not in the mind frame to go to a shop yet they will walk to the exchange) it reduces food miles, consumerism, it reduces packaging, has a positive impact on waste and out environment, it’s a win win to all.
As a community it promote communication, it promotes people to plant a seed top grow their own.
