... in case you wondered where i was ....

so it's been a little while since i've written.  i've been really busy packing and sorting and trying to be healthy.  that has had a mixed rate of success however.

but last weekend i spent three days at Milkwood Farm learning about OMG (organic market gardening).  and if you and i were sitting down over a cuppa i would spend so much time telling you what i learned and how as a family we were inspired by our hosts Nick and Kirsten and especially by Michael and Joyce of Allsun Organic Farm, as they taught us from their 20+ years of knowledge on the subject.

unfortunately, my life is a bit chaotic right now .... so i'll leave you with my facebook post on the matter which links of to the Milkwood article.

"So, if you wanted to know where we were from the 15th to the 18th of September .... it was here. being inspired, feeling like I am getting in on the ground floor of something that will not only change our families way of living .... but have a positive affect on how food is viewed in this country. thank you so much Milkwood Farm for hosting and to Michael and Joyce at Allsun for teaching and inspiring us all! what an inspiration! my head is still spinning from learning about crop rotation!"

and alas .... it is time for me to go back to packing boxes.  8 more sleep before we depart Sydney!

  1. It seems to have all happened all so fast. I guess you will be renting when you arrive. Try buying a carton of goats milk ...or fresh stuff if there is some around the area... just to see if the kids like it.(first step to buying a goat!!)
    You are going to have so much fun , I used to go to Casino as a child on holidays and it is a lovely part of the world. I Know you won't have time to post for a while , but I am looking forward to hearing your adventures when you get there.
