How food transforms lives... my talk on this Thursday - Geraldine


This Thursday I'll be chatting to locals about some of the discoveries we've made over the past few years, and how food has transformed our lives.

I'll talk about the exciting food revolution evolving in Geraldine township, and how with a little thought, food from paddock to plate has the ability to positively affect us all in a multitude of ways, which can often be life changing.

Hope to see you there,
Bec x

Walking Onions..


A very exciting package is winging it's way to us, just in time to be planted by the moon.

Egyptian Walking Onions - they do just that. They find their way around the garden in the most spectacular way, where they take root and grow.

I'll be planting mine by the moon come May. To find out when you should be planting your bulbs (such as garlic, shallots and onions) get the next copy of the Kiwi Gardener Magazine - available 30th April, where you'll find my fortnightly 'Lunar Gardening Guide'.

The bees are doing great. They're located quite close to our house so that we can watch them in action.

Keen to join a Bee Club? Get in touch with Gavin Oliver ph: 022 371 0679 as one is being setup in Geraldine soon!


Can you spot the Queen Bee?

What's on...

The festival has begun! It sure has been a big project and a great one to be involved in.

My blog posts will become regular again soon, once I've taken a breather after the festival.

In the mean time, here's the line up, in case you're in town this weekend. Spectacular!
