Terra Madre 2018

Slow Food Nations

http://slowfoodnations.org/

This is an international campaign biennial event that brings together diverse people to turn the herd away from the tyranny of cheap meat and toward a food system that is good, clean and fair for all.

Susan Rodger, from Eumundi Meats, – a very proud representative of Slow Food Noosa Inc. – was our sponsored delegate to attend Slow Food Nations USA 2017 (formerly known as Slow Meat USA):

Eumundi Beef raises grass-fed Angus beef using biodynamic and biological methodologies to provide nutrient-dense quality food for local families. They treat their animals with love and respect and that philosophy flows onto how they market their beef – nose to tail.  Susan is passionate about exploring nutritional, health and cooking styles suited to every portion of delicious beef available from a carcass.

The Tait-Duke Cottage is on site next to the garden, and during 2016 it was restumped,  and extensive renovations commenced. Noosa Council and United Synergies are co-ordinating this, and Noosa Community Garden team have set up new kitchen gardens beside the cottage.

Everyone is welcome to visit the garden at Earl Street, Noosaville and we encourage you to join us every Friday from 9am until noon  (8am starts during the warmer months) for gardening, workshops, harvesting and whatever needs to be done. A great way to meet new friends, connect with the earth and take home some fresh produce – and enjoy a lovely morning tea!
