A few guidelines:
1. All swap offers should be homegrown, baked, cooked, or harvested. 

2. Make sure to package swap offers in smaller sizes to help the swap move smoothly. Ziplock bags or plastic wrap work great.

3. Bring as many or as few swap offers as you like. You swap until you've run out of offers. 

4. Swapping is optional. Feel free to decline or accept any swap offer without obligation. 

5. All cooking is done in home kitchens. It is expected that participants and creators are using the highest cleanliness standards in their kitchens and gardens to prepare their swap goods.By participating in this event, you are acknowledging that the food items being traded are not necessarily prepared in Food Safe Certified or "approved" kitchen spaces inspected by government agencies.

6. Ensuring allergies or food sensitivities is the responsibility of the swapper. Please talk with other participants before swapping about ingredients that you wish to avoid. Make sure to bring a list of the ingredients used in your swap offer or label each item with ingredients. 

7. No selling or exchange of money is allowed. Gifting is absolutely encouraged.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
