Barter the Bounty of your Garden while Meeting Your Neighbors and Celebrating Community

On Saturday, March 10, 2012 community members interested in bartering can bring produce, eggs, honey, seeds, plants, tools, canned goods, promises of a helping hand in the kitchen or garden, and mentoring skills to trade with their neighbors. The only rules are no money and have fun. 

The barter will be taking place at Meridian Park Elementary Cafeteria on the corner of N 175th and Meridian Ave N. In addition to the barter, this event will also include a potluck, live music and kids activities. For more information, or to RSVP, email or call 206-790-5144.

This event is a collaboration between the Meridian Park Neighborhood Association and Backyard Barter. 

The Meridian Park Neighborhood Association hopes the event will provide a really fun community activity and bring the concept of bartering to Shoreline. 

Meridian Park Neighborhood Association has not hosted an event just for fun in a long time and they wanted to meet the neighbors and welcome people from outside of the community. 

Backyard Barter was formed by volunteers with a desire to build community while helping to encourage neighbors to grow and share food and skills. The Backyard Barter Project is funded through a Small and Simple Matching Grant through the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods and is fiscally sponsored by Seattle Tilth.

In addition to monthly in-person bartering events, Backyard Barter hosts a website that barterers can use to coordinate and trade with their neighbors all year round. The site allows individuals to describe what they have to share, learn from each other and arrange bartering relationships with their neighbors.
