GREEN GROCER< BURRINGBAR STREET

Very busy few days with the cooler than usual weather helping. Last of the turmeric and ginger ready to leave the gardens. All washed, graded and ready to bag.

Olivia, from the GREEN HOUSE GROCER, 63 Burringbar Street, Mullumbimby  0266843313, has started her garden visits to purchase whatever is on offer. Really good initiative from Michaela Gray, the shop’s proprietor. Olivia arrived this morning and we had a garden tour and she returned to town with chilli, turmeric, ginger and yacon.

Selling on for a reasonable mark-up its great to know, the grower where it all begins, from seed to harvest, is not being exploited.

Yesterday spent half the day scattering seeds from Black Apples, bolly gums and bangalow palms. Mulched around merging rain forest trees in our regeneration site.

Outrageous reality which is probably the same here in Australia. All the fossil fuel the synthetic fertilizer’s, the pesticides and herbicides, all to end up as waste and leeching into our environment.
