Arrived into Mullumbimby town at 7 am. Not a trace of the well attended week-end Music festival with the exception of a few young men wandering the streets. I spotted the below image etched into a newly laid footpath walking back into town from the rapidly expanding Industrial zone.

I saw a truck with a huge (painted Green) tank with spraying ahead signs leaving the Industrial Zone.
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.

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.
