Terrewah Farm open day - Saturday 21st May 2016 - a great success!
A huge thank you to those that came from near and far to attend the inaugural Terrewah Farm Open Day. We were blown away by the number of people that attended our talks and are so pleased to see so many of you seeking a greater connection with your food. It's also great to hear how many of you are already growing some of your own food at home. It is so important to retain those essential life skills and to pass on the joy and knowledge of growing to our children and grandchildren. To encourage and support you with your own growing adventures I'm going to be sharing my "tips from a rookie grower" here on the website and on Facebook. I'm by no means an expert but have learned a lot in the last few years and am happy to share my discoveries.
And judging by the success of our first Terrewah Farm Open Day, I think it will become a regular feature on our farm calendar... thanks for being a part of it!
CHARITY EVENT - Fruit Tree Workshop & Farmer's Table Lunch - 19th May 2018
Join us on Saturday 19th May from 10am for an informative workshop on all things fruit trees. Janet Walker from The Village Green will talk us through establishing an orchard, pruning, fertilizing and organic pest management. We'll talk tools and equipment for small scale orcharding and there will be plenty of time to have your fruit tree questions answered. Tickets are $15 for adults. Children are free.
After the fruit tree workshop those who'd like to linger a little longer can buy a ticket to our Farmer's Table lunch. You'll be treated to a hearty, all local, three course meal of farmhouse vegetable soup and crusty bread, slow cooked local free range pork, a range of tasty salads and side dishes all topped off with a traditional farmhouse dessert and local ice-cream. BYO wine and beer. We'll provide soft drink for those driving home. The combined ticket for both events is $50.
All profits from the day will go to Oxfam Australia in conjunction with their 'Trek to Tackle Poverty' which Jayden and Kirsty have decided to join. In March 2019 we'll be trekking through the rugged Sapa Valley of Northern Vietnam, living with villagers in remote communities and witnessing Oxfam's fight against poverty through the economic empowerment of local women. In order to take part in this life-affirming trip, Jayden and I need to raise $5000 to continue Oxfam Australia's amazing work around the globe. This is the first of several fund-raising activities we'll be holding during 2018. Thank you for helping us help to others lift themselves out of the cycle of poverty!
