Peter McCoy: Radical Mycology

We are sooooo excited to share the news that Peter McCoy will be coming to our shire while he's in Australia. Please join us for this very exciting event, followed by a shared supper. Just a reminder that all HRN events are waste free, so no plastic please.

Peter's book, Radical Mycology, will be available for purchase on the night, but if you're keen to read it before the gig you can grab your copy here. This is the first time the book has been available in Australia.

Community Pickling Day Update

Initially Edward from Adsum Farm allocated us 60kg of gherkins for the community pickling day, which people ordered in a matter of hours. Edward then kindly offered us another 40kg, which have now been ordered as well. That's 100kg of gherkins! So so wonderful. Edward, we are so grateful.

If you are still wanting to come on the day to pickle, please join us with your own gherkins. Some people have been ordering theirs from Tonna's.

2018 Community Pickling Day

Happy New Year friends + flowers!

You are cordially invited to come and get your pickle on at Culture Club's annual

Community Pickling Day 
Saturday February 3

Once again we have partnered with Edward + Fiona from Adsum Farmhouse who are growing gherkins especially for us. So if you don't have your own homegrown cucumbers to bring along, you can pre-order Adsum Farm organic gherkins:

$7 per kilo. They are providing us with 60kg of gherkins so you'd better get your orders in quick.

Please email your order to by Saturday January 27 and pay on the day. To keep things streamlined, please do not contact Adsum Farmhouse with your orders.

What to bring along on the day:
  • exact change if you've ordered Adsum Farm gherkins
  • as many clean jars + lids, or crocks as you'll need for your pickles
  • a measuring cup
  • a tablespoon measure
  • a small knife
  • a chopping board
  • salt, garlic cloves, black peppercorns, bay leaves, fresh dill or dill seeds, mustard seeds, leaves containing tannin (grape, cherry, oak, horseradish, green or black tea)

There is no need to book, just rock up. Looking forward to seeing you there!
