Revive the senses through feel-good food. Just do anything food-wise, no matter how small, that makes you zing: pour hot water over fresh herbs for a fragrant tea; buy a whole organic pumpkin for a kitchen table centrepiece; thank a farmer at a farmers' market; put your hands on warm earth; spot a local rosemary bush; snag some for your lamb roast or your hair (Why not? Go nuts!); and comment to share your feel-good spring snippet. If stuck for ideas, mine are yours. Let's unite in support of feel-good food and ethical food practices. Thanks to all too who supported my Spring Feel-Good Food Project. I had a blast! While my food interests are diverse, so is my food writing history (and lifestyle freelance writing and corporate writing, yada...). Please see below right and my new FoodLit Website. Yeah! Please also subscribe for occasional food-fuelled news, ventures and opportunities.

How Lightly Can You Grow? - Day 47, 45 To Go



When you walk into a store for the first time and feel you know the people like family, you know you share deep connections that go beyond the everyday. While shared interests certainly unite people, a connection based on respect for pure food and the land that produces it is essentially reverence for creation, the closest connection there is.



Grow Lightly in Coal Creek (Kurumburra) is a non-profit store and community organisation that encourages Gippslanders to grow and eat food grown locally. 

Buy fresh, local bread, veggies, fruit, herbs, preserves, great muesli, eggs, espresso, chai, dried fruit and nuts, fresh nuts in season and whatever's currently being grown or made locally.

Arrange a weekly box of fresh, organic goodies or volunteer to work in the store or pack fruit and veggie boxes. Or get dirt under your nails and help nature do what she innately does and grow for the store.
 
Committed to increasing people's access to high quality, local food and encouraging small-scale, organic horticulture in the local area, the Grow Lightly team make you feel like you just got home. So refreshing.
