MINDFUL EATING FOR HEALTH
13th February, 2017

Title: Eating Mindfully for Health - how to find balance in all the busyness. Images: abundant luscious fruit and vegetables

Do find yourself rushing to fit in meals around other commitments, or using meals as a chance to catch up on work or social media, barely noticing or enjoying what you put in your mouth? At the pace most of us now live, eating often becomes just another task to tick off. However, our focus on expediency may have a greater impact on our health and wellbeing than we realise. (more…)

WORKSHOPS: GROW YOUR OWN WINTER VEG

GROW YOUR OWN WINTER VEG 2016

with Robin Johnson

ROBIN'S SEEDLINGS

‘With the wet and humid weather we have experienced in the upper mountains this summer, my newly germinated seedlings have been very susceptible to “Damping off”. I have lost about 5 trays of seedlings over the last 3 or 4 weeks.  Seedling “Damping Off” is when the root of the newly germinated seedling collapses. The trick is, at this stage of the young plant’s life, to provide a steady clean flow of air.’

A LITTLE PEACE IN THE LANEWAY
18th June, 2015

The Winter Magic Festival is on Saturday 20th June.

Once a year, on Winter Magic Day, Katoomba Street is uncharacteristically bursting at the seams with tens of thousands of people. It’s a great day to get out, to brashly banish the winter blues, to come together with visitors from near and far and marvel at the parade, costumes and stalls galore.

And at some point during any Winter Magic we all need an oasis of calm, somewhere to relax and recharge before rejoining the throng. Around the Co-op we’re creating that little place of peace, where you and yours can come and chill out in Ha’penny Lane. We’ll be selling hot spiced Logan Brae juice outside the shop along with sweet treats to eat – locally made bliss balls and other winter apple treats from Addiction Foods. All proceeds of these treats will go to help Winter Magic Sustainability and Earth Recovery .

Nourshmii will be here from 10am until 3pm with –
Moroccan chickpea stew with pumpkin and apricots served on turmeric rice with a green olive and preserved lemon yogurt dollop.

We’ve invited our treasured regular buskers and a few very special guests to our peaceful chillout space.

Including –

Zeb Olsen & Nick Strike- with their improvised guitar soundscapes and others.

Check us out on Facebook for details!

Come along and share your messages of peace on our recycled card and hang them up in the laneway in an installation of our communities words of peace.

Many thanks Amy Bell-Daisychain for the art work and our community of yarn bombers for your contributions to this event!

 

AIR BEE & BEE….
5th September, 2014

Have you ever seen a reed bee, resin bee, leafcutter bee, masked bee or blue banded bee? They’re just some of native bees out there in all our gardens. Most native bees are quite a bit smaller than the honey bee we’re more familiar with. There are over 1500 species of Australian native bees, 200 of those in the mountains. Most are semi social or solitary, and what’s perhaps more surprising is that there’s really not a whole lot of research out there about them, including big gaps in our knowledge about their distribution.
