Hands On Projects

Neighborhood Swapping and Sharing

Transition Berkeley has been encouraging growing and sharing food in our community year-round for the past 7 years! We've enabled thousands of free transactions and a way neighbors can have fun, while learning from each other. Sharing and growing food locally saves money and is better for our health and the health of our planet - and it is so enjoyable! Be part of this wonderful sharing economy!

WINTER SWAPS are held the first Saturday of the month at 10:30 am, in Ohlone Park, across from the North Berkeley BART station. Winter Swaps include sharing crops and items described for the Crop Swaps (below), as well as clothing and books.


SPRING-FALL CROP SWAPS are hosted weekly June - September at two locations. Bring your crops, seeds, seedlings, honey, eggs, something homemade, recipes, gardening tip and ideas!

  • South Berkeley (Ashby Community Garden, 1376 Ashby Ave.) -Sundays, 1:00 pm

  • Ohlone Park (across from the North Berkeley BART)-Monday evenings, 6:30 pm


Could you lend a hand to help support the Swaps or want to start one in your neighborhood?
