Harvest Mayhem cannot be sold, but we can be traded

I am excited to announce that next weekend Sustainable Renton will be holding it’s annual barter fair!! This is a way for community members to mingle and trade handmade and homegrown goods. This is my most favorite part of the Harvest Mayhem Festival because it is a wonderful opportunity to meet local artisans while offloading things I have made or harvested in abundance and get some fun free stuff as well! If you love free stuff like I do then you will LOVE the barter fair! Please come and share the bounty. Do not forget to tell all your friends because the more people that show up the better the barter opportunities will be!!
Some things I have gained in past barter events are kombucha scoby, plants, seeds, homegrown herbs, spices and teas and local art. Some things I have brought for trade are plants, soap, baked goods, and jewelry. Other ideas for bartering include anything you have made or built, extra harvest from your garden(edible or medicinal), things you have canned, ferments, pickles artwork or skills.
I can’t wait to see what people will bring! I will have plants and some other surprises to trade.
The Barter fair will be held from. 11-Noon during our Harvest Mayhem Festival which runs 11-4 August 6th. There will be lots of fun for the whole family including tractor rides, music, art market, stone soup and more! So come bring your friends and your goods to trade  and spend the afternoon at the farm.

This event will be at Sustainable Renton Community Farm located behind Celebration Church at 11840 148th Ave SE Renton, WA 98059
