Milkwood Supporting

In this movement to support a more localized, hands on, equitable, community scaled food system there are many characters. The diversity and abundance of the people involved is something to celebrate as the movement has far to go.

There are characters in this movement who fundamentally understand this and position themselves to share, educate and promote in such a way that demonstrates the principles of the overall movement in an exemplary way.

Milkwood is one such organization.

If you haven’t come across Milkwood yet, let me be the first to say – you are totally missing out! Kirsten is prolific in connecting and promoting not only what goes on in their farm just outside of Mudgee NSW but also supporting the broader food movement.

The Milkwood Farm is not only a working farm but also a demonstration and teaching space for permaculture courses (include PDCs), natural bee keeping, organic market gardening, fementation, mushroom cultivation, aquaponics…. and the list goes on. Excitingly for those that are a bit city-centric many of these courses are also held in Sydney, so check out the courses for a location near you.

I’m yet to visit but every time I receive a Milkwood newsletter and those beautiful photographs pop up filled with lush vegetation and ripe foods I know I need to book in a trip to northern NSW!

Milkwood is supporting our Reclaim the Curb competition by offering the NSW winner a pass to one of their Introduction to Permaculture courses. Outstanding!

Thanks Kirsten and the Milkwood team for this support, and be sure to check out their blog and facebook page to keep up to date with what is going on, on and off the farm!

About Juliette

When Juliette was little, she came home from school and asked her mum in her little teary voice why the other kids at school didn’t like her. Her mum reassured her and said 'Don't worry Juliette, you're just different. That's all.' Since then, aware of her obvious difference to everyone else, Juliette is spending her time doing exactly what people wish to be doing – exactly what she wants. This blog is a celebration of taking a deep breath and just doing it. Currently Juliette can be found sipping tea and gardening somewhere in Central Victoria, Australia with her beloved and their excitable boys. She is also completing her PhD in Civic Agriculture and teaches at RMIT in Sustainable Consumption and Design Activism.
