The response to The Speculator’s recent survey on a local fruit and vege barter exchange was overwhelmingly positive. The total number of respondents was 40 , so the results are indicative only, not representative.
The concept, nicknamed “Turnip and Trade” (Yes, The Speculator is a marketing genius) achieved over a 90% approval rating, with 70% of respondents stating they would use the concept and another 20% saying they would consider it.
Surveys of this nature can be a bit tricky in that the respondents can be self-selecting; i.e. only people with an interest in gardens might respond.
However, the bottom line is that there are at least 39 people out there in the local Devonport area who are prepared to give it a go, and that should be enough to get the idea off the ground.
