Eat Local Week has come and gone, and it was bigger than ever. The Scenic Rim Council sponsors the event and its signature event is The Winter harvest festival this Sat 6th July.
On the mountain I organised a bus tour to visit some organic gardens to see the winter vegetables with cabbage, kale, potatoes (purple ones too), parsnips, carrots, beetroot, broccoli (and broccoletti and broccolini) Then Andrew from the old church made a sumptuous lunch from the freshly picked produce. We enjoyed visits to wineries, brewery, cheese factory and 2 farms.
It was so popular that I will be doing the tours every season, so keep an eye out for the Spring garden, wine and producers visits.
