Food is Free Day – Lovely turn out

We had a wonderful morning on Sunday, 1st March for Food is Free Day. Goes to show how busy you are when you only find out two weeks later that we were actually on the front cover!

Thanks to everyone who came out and shared herbs, fruit & veg and lovely conversation. To those who needed and took home we hope you enjoyed every last nummy bite!

If you’d like to experience more home-grown, spray-free local produce you can drop in to The Growers’ Co op every Tuesday 10am-2pm at Mountain Health next to Flour + Water.

If you’d like to learn more about our volunteer permablitzing group to help develop your garden to grow more veggies join The Blitz List for info on upcoming events.

Look forward to seeing you in the garden soon!

Originally from sugar cane farming in North Queensland, one of six kids with parents who always grew their own food. During my years at the bank in Sydney as Sustainability Work Stream Leader I was charged with researching sustainability issues and helping the staff in our department learn how to reduce their impact on the world; at the office, in the home, and garden. I gathered knowledge on consumption, waste and procurement dependance and implemented learnings for our staff that was a real eye opener for everyone. Our reliance on natural resources and vast international systems to entertain, feed, and clothe us makes us vulnerable, and though our collective attitude in decades' past to consumption and waste is slowly changing, more needs to be done to increase our grass roots resilience and self-reliance, both personally and in our communities. We're igniting a local movement towards greater self-reliance, food security, good health, collaboration, sharing of skills, ideas, hard work and laughs. I love growing organic heirloom vegetables and living as chemically free as possible. When we garden we truly find ourselves and each other.
