“Our imaginations are rooted in the natural world. They formed in the natural world. They took their metaphors and similes from the natural world. It’s from the natural world that we thought that something might be ‘strong as an oak tree’ or ‘fragile as a reed’. I don’t think the human creations on the whole supply us with figures of speech. It is the natural world which does….Our imagination itself takes its root in the natural world, and increasingly the natural world is being distanced from us, and that can only impoverish our own imaginations.” Susan Griffin

WAKING THE WORLD WITH A SONG

I live in Brighton in the UK overlooking the ocean. My daybreak is called in with the cries of gulls as they circle the beach scavenging for food washed up by the expansive waters. Their chorus pierces through the night, stretching to my ears and calling me to open the shutters and watch them circling

YOUNG FARMERS CONNECT

/

“All of the focus in these emerging new farmers spaces is around the ‘how’ and not on the ‘who’ and that’s where the Young Farmers Connect network is really different. We are focusing on who the hell is going to grow the food into a regenerative future, not so much – how it’s going to be done.”  My passion has really been around creating a movement for young farmers, and a network and broader communities to support this emerging demographic. But also, to advocate for policy change and industry support because the small scale farming sector in particular doesn’t often

BUILD A COMMUNITY GARDEN?

How did you get involved with the Inverell Community Gardens and when? Well, I’ve been involved with Inverell Community Gardens since it first started at its new site in 2012. I was there when we planted the first tree. My children, my beautiful children, helped plant the first olive tree. The Gardens originally came about as a result of a group who were concerned about food security in Inverell. And they really wanted to show people how Inverell, I guess, was self-sustaining, and can be self-sustaining, and has been in the past. – to teach the new generations how things

There are few food items that we so powerfully associate with pleasure, comfort, and indulgence. But pure chocolate — cacao — has also unique properties that are beneficial to health. In South America, cacao is called “food of the gods.” The Mayan and Aztec peoples called it ‘xocolatl’ and consumed it as a sacred drink. It’s packed with antioxidants that are readily absorbed by our bodies. It’s also high in two nutrients most people don’t get enough of in their
