The Consignors' Club
Would you like to join a loose group of people growing specialist produce for the Co-op?
The idea is that new (and old!) consignors work together to supply heirloom vegetables, give each other support and advice and, most importantly, schedule what's being grown to avoid a 'glut and drought' situation.
Heirloom vegetables are sought after - and this is where we will start.
There is also a demand for Rosellas and we might look at these as well.
Our meetings and advice could all be done on-line - which is not to say we won't meet for a coffee now and then. If you're interested contact me....sammy - at - ausbushfoods.com
A Big Thank you!
To all the vollies, Bunya workers and staff - the Real Food Festival was a great success but we couldn't have done it without you!
The Children's Garden Grows
Dwarf fruit trees donated
The Sunshine Coast Regional Council have been very supportive of the Children’s Community Garden behind the Co-op, donating mulch, signage and seedlings to the endeavour. Last week, Bruce Smith (Council’s Parks Community Partnership Officer) put a smile on everyone’s face when he turned up with two trays of dwarf fruit trees.
Kate Kazony, one of the driving forces behind the garden, was delighted.
