Grow, Cook, Swap

Join the Mile High Swappers for their June food swap. Mile High Swappers is simply a collection of avid cooks, gardeners and socializers who enjoy sharing their creations with other like-minded folks. Think you fit the bill? Join them at 2 p.m. at ‘On the Vine’ at Richmond Farms in Fort Collins on June 24th to share your own creations. You will have a chance to check out the products that others have brought to the swap and let them know that you’re interested. You can see who wants your own amazing creations as well as partake in enjoying different samples and excellent company. If you have something extra to share, the Swappers also collect homegrown produce and commercially prepared non-perishable items to donate to a local food pantry. For more information on this event and others put on by the Mile High Swappers go to their website: www.milehighswappers.com.
