October Culture Club (plus a whole heap more)

Culture Club has another special guest coming to share knowledges. Introducing Monique Miller. Monique will be discussing her ideas on fermentation and presenting a workshop:

Saturday 6th of October, 9.30am - 12.30pm 
Senior Citizen's Room (behind the Daylesford Town Hall).
This is a FREE event open to all community members.

Monique is a generalist. She divides her time between bush land management, teaching edible weed & fermentation workshops and facilitating the permaculture design course at CERES in Brunswick East.

She has been teaching fermentation for more than four years, teaching from Confest to Bairnsdale.
On her days off she enjoys cleaning her house (no, really) and drinking a gratuitous amount of tea while gardening.

Thank you to everyone who came along to September's Culture Club, especially Nicole Azzopardi, who so very generously shared her story, recipes and ferments with us. If you would like to order Nicole's book, The Alchemy Cookbook, please let us know as we are putting in a bulk order.

Have a look at these beautiful photos taken by the ever-wondrous Mara Ripani at the September Culture Club:

A conversation with permaculture co-originator David Holmgren (author of RetroSuburbia) and US food movement scholar-activist Eric Holt-Gimenez (author of A Foodie's Guide to Capitalism) as they offer insights into how to develop a deep engagement and long-term commitment to regenerative and just economies. More details to come...

Annual community spring equinox dinner

Did you know that the word "equinox" is derived from the Latin aequus (equal) and nox (night), because around the equinox, night and day are about equal length?

Come and help celebrate the coming spring equinox with a community dinner as we rejoice the blossom and buds and warmer weather, and are reminded that this is the time of the year when Rod May and Su Dennett would dream up the vegetable season ahead.

Thursday September 20 at 7pm
The Woodshed, 21a Raglan Street, Daylesford

Tickets are $20 (plus booking fee) for a main meal and dessert. Kids under 10 are free.
Food lovingly prepared by Spade to Blade.

Sorry for the late notice but bookings for the dinner close Thursday September 13.

The entertainment for the evening will be provided by the Mosquito Story Slam.
