Australian Farmers’ Markets Association and farmers’ markets across the country are celebrating World Bee Day this month. Show your support for the important role bees play in food production by doing your shop at this Saturday's Mudgee Farmers’ Market. Check out gorgeous natives from Bilby Blooms and Flowers by GG and the real thing from Adam at Cudgegong Honey... This is one of the most bee-friendly ways to buy your fresh fruit and vegetables, honey and even your morning coffee - all of which depend on bees. Two-thirds of our food production relies on bees - so bring the Buzz this Saturday, wear a bit of yellow and help start more conversations. Visit www.worldbeeday.org.au for more information.
Autumn is time for turmeric harvesting and there is no better time to feature this delicious superfood than in a nourishing warming dish in the cooler weather. This weekend you can find fresh as well as dried, pickled turmeric products from Within Radius (Six Paddocks) and in case you've missed it, from the cook Alison Roman, we will share #thestew that broke the internet in our newsletter out this Thursday - Spiced Chickpea Stew with Turmeric and Coconut
Did you know that the by-product of your daily coffee ‘fix’ is an excellent addition to your compost? Coffee grounds are relatively rich in nitrogen helping retain moisture and creating and maintaining heat giving bacteria a hospitable growth environment. Combine coffee grounds with twigs, leaves and paper to speed up healthy decomposition and create a lovely rich fertile compost - the worms love it! Drop in with a bucket to Mudgee Corner Store who participate in local recylcing programme 'Gounded' - its a great way to supplement your compost for free and help a local business manage their organic waste which, sadly, could otherwise end up as landfill.
From modern designs to lasting keepsakes, discover thoughtful gift ideas that Mum can cherish every day. This Sunday there will be a number of designers boasting diverse collections of handmade jewellery catering to the 'chill Yogi Mum', the ‘Rocker Mum’ to the ‘Classic Country Mum’ and all the 'Cool' Mums in between…. 😉 Best of all, all the pieces you'll see are not only Australian Made, but locally Made - so you are supporting both a local small business and therefore helping to further strengthening our little community.
