Gold Coast Permaculture Gardening and Cooking Workshops
Gold Coast Permaculture's new gardening and cooking workshops have taken off with a bang.
For those who dream of growing amazing and plentiful vegetables the introduction to organic gardening with Justin was an exciting beginning.
I have never seen vegetables growing with such strength and vigor.
Already Gold Coast Permaculture is a living example of what can be done to renew the soil and create bountiful and nutrient rich food in a city setting.
Sitting under a mango tree drinking lemongrass and ginger tea and eating delicious vegan muffins was also a great way to learn about food fermentation.
Three informed and creative presenters introduced us to Komucha, Kefir and Kim-Chi and demonstrated their presentation.
It was a special joy to be able to divert to the garden for food to ferment.
That's me in the hat in the center listening intently to this new way to add nutrients to the diet.
What I love about each new activity with this wonderful group is the atmosphere of sharing and caring that permeates and creates a fun event for all.
Below is the ongoing timetable for this series of workshops, and there will also be an additional workshop next Saturday, July 30th at 11.00AM with An Introduction to Sub Tropical Cooking and Vegetables. This will be an interesting workshop on how to cook with vegetables found in the tropic and sub tropics, with preparation, recipes and planting material.
I for one am looking forward to another great day learning to live a new way and sharing the adventure with such special people.
