It looks interesting, shame about the “greeny bullsh!t bingo” language used..

Should read; “selling local products is the reason for this event.”

Should read; “in a hall.”

Sounds like a great event!

While I am cynical about many aspects of the green agenda and jargon, you don’t have to be a greenie to appreciate and support local producers. Glad the chook workshop is happening, as that is the drawcard for me.

I would love to encourage and support local growers, (as opposed to the corporate move to food, often labelled ‘product of Australia’ – or NZ – that actually originates in China).
