Just another day in the life of Urban Tucker Woman, as she trades produce in her community!

"Hi Caroline,
This is such a lovely idea to put to use all the produce and food that might be getting wasted.

Thanks for taking the initiative and doing this, we need to spread the word and get more people to join the sharing."
