The course will cover making a mother, a sponge, kneading baking and eating. There are spaces available if anybody is interested.
As part of Transition Towns Maitland we started a knitting activity at the local Organic Cafe. We left knitting needles and yarn and a little note asking people if they would like to knit while they had coffee. It became very popular and when you visited you would often see people knitting and chatting. There would also be people showing others, sometimes total strangers ,how to knit. The result was lots and lots of small squarish pieces. These pieces are being crotched together and the rug will be raffled. The finishing off happens this Saturday with all hands on deck.
Sunday is Sustainable House Day. You can find one close to where you live here if you live in Australia.
We have been invited to set up a display and give a talk at a house in Newcastle here. They have asked us to talk on Permaculture. Now that is such a big topic and we only have a short time. I want to talk specifically on home vegetable production and bringing Food production back to the cities. I would like to talk about how growing food can help cut grocery bills, increased health benefits and how much better the food tastes. What do you think?
I will have a small blackboard there to entice people to come and hear the presentation. Can you think of something snappy that will catch peoples eye? I'd love to hear from all you creative people.
