Community immunity, community repair

This is a watch and learn workshop. No bookings required. Just rock up on the day.

* * *

So your toaster isn't working, your duffel coat has lost a button, your bike needs new brake cables and your pocket knife is blunt. Have you heard about the Daylesford Repair Café? It's on the third Sunday of each month from 1pm till 4pm at the pavilion at Victoria Park in Daylesford. Come along and bring your items that need mending. There will be tea, coffee and cakes to be enjoyed too. Email for more info. See ya there!

Community Krauting Day wrap up

And it's a wrap!

Thank you to the cabbages, thank you to Edward + Serge for growing them. Thank you to the soil, the sun +  earth, thank you to the salt, the wild microbes, the jars and the crocks. Thank you to the 40 people who came along to share, laugh, pound and squeeze. Thank you to Mara Ripani for catching the tail end of the day with her signature beautiful photos, and to Blackwood Ulman Jones for the video at the end of this post (that you'll need to click through to the blog to see (if you are reading this in your inbox)).
