Swapping Seeds to Green Long Eaton

Updated: Apr 3, 2019

Spring Swap with Aitone Collective - Encouraging Eco Friendly activity in Long Eaton

Seed Swapping, spreading the love of gardening around our town

All roads led to the Hungry Caterpillar Cafe in Long Eaton this afternoon (after our open session in the morning). Where Aitone Collective, a group of individuals who are serious about saving the planet by making changes at a local level, were running their second event. A Spring Swap shop, to encourage Long eaton residents to swap their unwanted good, saving them from landfill, and pick up something new without having to spend any money.

It was great to see some old unused items have a new lease of life with someone else!


Books, toys, clothing and seeds could all be swapped for a token, which was then exchanged for other goods folks wanted to take home with them.



Aitone Collectives next event is a repair cafe in May and then a Summer Swap shop in July. Check their facebook page for full details. https://www.facebook.com/aitonecollective/
