Remember the days when you could wander down the road and borrow a cup of sugar from a neighbour? Or maybe you don’t! Now we’re more likely to “borrow” our neighbours’ wifi connections than baking goods or barbeques. If you want to get back in touch with your local community and the good old spirit of giving, Vege Mates is here to help with forums and threads dedicated to swapping knowledge (recipes, gardening tips), material items (vintage and antiques) and, if you’re close enough, even edible goods. Anybody with a garden full of homegrown veggies is a mate of mine!
