156 Stuart St, Mullumbimby

$10/$5conc

Come and keep warm in July and help us try and make the
BIGGEST HOT COMPOST HEAP IN THE WORLD with local horticulturist Diane Hart.

Get all of her HOT TIPS on how to make it - what to put in and what to leave out and how to turn waste into wonder.

We need as many people as we can get to bring their GREEN WASTE and help turn lovely loads of RUBBISH into BLACK GOLD. The soil is already saying THANK YOU.

EVERY SINGLE DAY tons of valuable organic material are thrown away by households and food outlets in Byron Shire – which then goes to the tip. So let’s start collecting it and HOT COMPOST it into something useful.

WE NEED YOU TO BRING lots of bags, boxes and bins full of:

• Horse manure, stable and chook pen sweepings.
• Lawn clippings ( not sprayed)
• Dried grass
• Leaves
• Food scraps (no more than 3 days old please and no meat, fish or dairy)
• Coffee grounds (café’s are happy for you to collect if you take them a bucket – Australians throw away 3,000 tons each year!)
• Juicing pulp from café’s (same, take them a bucket and collect)
• Comfrey and lemon grass prunings
• Hair from hairdressers (clean waste please)

Santos Organics Lennox Community Gardens Northern Rivers Community Gardens Network Lismore Community Garden SCU Community Gardens Ballina Community Gardens IncThe Australian City Farms & Community Gardens Network are pledging our official support of The Vegetable Plot

The Vegetable Plot are an award-winning bunch of roots musicians who have sprung from the underground on a radical mission: to get kids to fall in love with vegetables!

We want to show our support for this amazing group of talented musicians on their journey to create a soundtrack for the food revolution! One that is reconnecting us to the food we eat, and helping kids and families to understand and care about their food, where it comes from and how it's grown.

We share this same mission and passion and we know you do to!

The Vegetable Plots tunes provide joy and inspiration.
“Changing our food habits and our food culture from one of speed and convenience to one based on community benefit and good nutrition, requires a bit of effort and determination for most people. Our music can provide that vital sense of fun and inspiration that gets people to take the first step, and then the next step, and the step after that. Our music isn't just a bunch of catchy jingles, it features characters and stories, it takes you on a journey, it grows on you, and it grows with you. Most of all, it is as appealing to adults as it is to kids. "

Feel like getting your hands dirty and helping out our new young farmer?

Suria Foods will be on site prepping beds and getting her new patch at Future Feeders up a running Wed from 8am.

Visit the farm and come say hello. Follow the track through the Mullumbimby Community Gardens to the market garden at the rear.

PM Suria Foods for more infoIntroducing Katerina as a new face at Future Feeders.

Super excited to be growing another farmer from the ground up!

Follow along, engage and support Katerina on this journey on FB, Instagram @futurefeeders and @katerina_suria and of course : find out more on the website : www.futurefeeders.org

Katerina is embarking as the very first participant of the "Micro Farm Incubator" program at our market garden at the Mullumbimby Community Garden

You may have been lucky enough to have already sampled her amazing produce at Suria Foods which is available at a number of local markets.

She is taking a big jump in scale and production and will be tackling the entire value chain for her awesome delicious fermented products.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Future Feeders has been established in order to support and develop opportunities for young farmers in small scale agriculture within the local food economy.

A key obstacle to the development of young farmers is supportive pathways into the industry.

The Micro Farm Incubator (MFI) is a 1 year program with resources, infrastructure and secure land access within a framework which is low risk and supportive.

Future Feeders are encouraged to explore their ideas, business concepts, products and production methods through a peer-supported learning through doing approach and use the MFI opportunity as a launchpad into the industry and sustainable food system.

Hot tips for garlic planting

Look at that soil!!! Delicious 😍

Unfortunately very hard to grow garlic at MCG - just not right temperature conditions - not cold enough at night. What to do? Grow Russian garlic (a variety of onion) or plant normal garlic - put cloves in fridge overnight before planting - and harvest and use as ‘wet garlic’ (green) as used in Asian cooking, because the bulbs won’t set into cloves. Or should I say 'rarely' - a cold winter will do it and choosing the right variety. It's all about microclimate - a few kms. up the valley - where it's colder - and they have success.🌼
