Our March event was simply eggsellent! Thanks to all who attended.

Lee Mary, Lachie and the team from QRoasters were awarded a Slow Food Brisbane Snail of Approval for bringing us great coffee that is ethically and sustainably sourced.

The gorgeous pastured eggs were supplied by Kristy and Stuart from The Produce Patch and we were delighted to hear Stuart speak about the farm, their happy chickens and what led the couple to their egg production adventure. Here is the Power Point presentation.

And, a big thank you  also to Georgina for sharing her entertaining backyard chook experience. Here is the powerpoint presentation.

Thanks to all who joined us at Slow Food Brisbane’s first event for 2019.

For the Love of Urban Farming.  Our dinner on Valentine’s Day was a great success.

 

Chef, Tay Olsen took us on a flavoursome journey through urban farms of Brisbane and south-east Queensland.  We enjoyed beetroot and mushroom ravioli featuring mushrooms from Little Acres farm at West End, wild boar with local greens from Jane Street community garden and a baclava featuring south-east Queensland’s own bunya nut.  All courses were expertly matched with a full-flavoured beer brewed on site at the Newstead Brewing Co.

 

 

 

 

 

It was a delight to sample the locally produced mushrooms from Little Acres farm and to hear  Mickey and Amy talk about what inspired them to create their urban mushroom farm.

 

 

 

Delicious greens from the Jane Street Community Garden further complemented our taste experience and it was magical to hear about James and Melissa’s passion for the work they’re doing in New Farm and as educators in urban edible gardening.
