The first Community Fruit & Vege Swap within the Charles Sturt Council area was started at West Croydon in January 2008 by local resident Julietta.

The West Croydon swap, which meets weekly from just after New Year to the end of Summer each year, has proved extremely successful, with a consistently high attendance throughout the summer.

In 2009, regular attendees at the Swap were so keen to keep in contact that they met monthly during the remainder of the year as a "Winter Open Garden Circle", sharing home baking, recipes, seeds, seedlings, a small amount of produce, and "getting to see the gardens where all that fabulous Summer produce is grown!"
