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
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.
