ahhh yes, the old and rather large stumbling road block that is “insurance”. Annoying.
I think it would be a good idea, your facebook page, informal get togethers would also be another great place – a lot like the ones we organise here!!!?! :woohoo:
I found my Lets id, and a trading sheet of one of the few markets that I went to, must try to log on and see what is happening.April 23, 2012 at 2:15 pm #523491
Fruitful, yes that was what I was hoping for.
I have found that the trading website can be a bit “lacking” sometimes, the markets can be good, but getting to them on a Saturday morning at Payneham is a bit of a pain for me, hence I was hoping for some more “impromptu” trading to come out of the facebook page, a bit like here…..”Ive got excess blah blah who wants to come collect some” of “I need some of this can anyone help” etc.
If your on Facebook feel free to join the group, you’ll have to be “accepted” but that is more to stop spammers rather than to be exclusive, there is a couple of admins who should accept your request pretty quickly.April 23, 2012 at 2:21 pm #523492

How does the facebook page work?? Is it a closed group thing where you actually have to go onto the page to comment?? I wouldn’t want all my comments and pictures displayed there is all. I’ll pm you my details but I really only use fb to keep in touch with my rather large family so I’m not all that cluey about the ins and outs of it.April 25, 2012 at 7:08 pm #523498
My original idea was for the facebook group to be only for LETS members, but then it was pointed out that it might be better for it to be open to anyone who was “interested” in LETS, and then to trade they would need to sign up to the trading page.
The Group is a “closed” group, so posts and photos etc are only visible to group members, but group members are not necessarily LETS members, but they do have to be approved by an admin (there are 2 at the moment).
The Tablelands page (http://www.facebook.com/groups/114157795271259/) seems to be working really well, but that is an open group, and I personally would not be comfortable putting the info which some do on there.
I guess its really just an extra form of communication, all of the trading needs to go through the proper LETS site, so I guess even if you didnt want to post photos or what ever on FB you could just write a comment stating something like “I have just posted a couple of offers for …. on the trading page if anyone is intested”
Oh and with the groups pages, just because you are a member doesnt mean other group members can see your info (ie your not automatically “fiends” with those people)
Feel free to join the group, have a look around, if you dont like it, as an admin I can “remove” you if you wishApril 25, 2012 at 8:33 pm #523499
Fruitful, you can always leave the group if you don’t like it [you don’t need an admin to remove you].
Vanessa-who do I contact about finding my LETS id? I cant remember it, nor can I remember which Adelaide Lets group I joined [either the Adelaide or Adelaide Hills one]April 26, 2012 at 12:33 pm #523500
okay, I’ll put in a friend request when I check fb today.January 27, 2013 at 1:11 pm #523501
Just giving this a “bump” as I was discussing LETS with a couple of people at the GTG yesterdayJanuary 28, 2013 at 10:19 am #523502jaden62Member
Thanks Vanessa. I had seen this post before (the comment about the 5mth old eating the keyboard was familiar 😆 ). I’ll go through it more & chase up a bit more information. Too bad it’s not happening out this side of town anymore, though I do remember coming across a site once that was about a regular exchange day in Gawler – once a month or so, if I remember rightly. I was going to to up there one day, but on the day got sidetracked & couldn’t find my link to the site anymore. I’ll go looking again.January 29, 2013 at 4:10 pm #523503
jaden62, feel free if you are on Facebook to join the group, http://www.facebook.com/groups/202187236551266/ some info and all the links are listed as a pinned post at the moment. It is a closed group so you have to be “approved” but we have a few admins which can do that so you shouldn’t be waiting too long, and we approve anyone who is interested and as long as you don’t spam us we wont put you on the banned list (we have had a few lately).January 29, 2013 at 9:08 pm #523504jaden62Member
I found the information about the food exchange in Gawler & rang them. Only to find that they don’t do it anymore, it was the last people @ the community centre, & where did I get the details from? So I gave them the 2 websites I found, & they were going to contact them & have the information removed.
They then told me that the Natural Resource Management Centre may be able to help – unfortunately their website is about 6mths out of date & doesn’t have anything for 2013 yet.
