Looking for an adventure these school holidays?
Why not take the family on a country drive and explore Sydney's local growers markets and farms where you can pick your own produce. Harvest Trails and Markets exists to keep farmers in the Sydney basin farming. As a not-for-profit community incorporated organisation, HTM helps connect producers directly with consumers to give growers an alternative distribution channel to the central market. Harvest Trails and Markets began as Hawkesbury Harvest in 2000 by a small group of passionate people from a diverse range of backgrounds. As different as they were, they were united by a love of the Hawkesbury region and its agricultural heritage. Hawkesbury Harvest was a way to promote healthy diets, to spread the word about the abundance of locally produced food, the seasonal beauty of the area and the importance of keeping agriculture – particularly food production – in the Sydney Basin. Visit: http://www.harvesttrailsandmarkets.com.au to find out more and plan your country adventure.
Bring the country to the city and plant a vegie garden today.
It's super easy to grow your own herbs, lettuce, beans, spinach and fruits like passionfruit, lemon, lime, oranges and tomatoes. You don't need a big backyard, but you will need half a dozen pots or large containers to grow your fresh produce in. Recycling bins are a favourite for many, built tough with drainage holes they do make the perfect growing tub. Plan to plant on mass, one type of produce per container works best. If possums or birds are a pest to your vegetable garden you can buy a mesh cover for $20 from bunnings, whack in a few garden stakes to keep the net from squashing your produce and leave on 24/7 or cover at night. Growing herbs like parsley, mint, thyme, corriander, basil or lemongrass is a great place to start. You can do a mixed tub of herbs or a full tub of lettuce. As long as you water your produce daily and place them in a position where they can get atleast half the day in the sun, you'll soon have your own pesticide free produce to cook with.
