Last Saturday saw the Farmer’s Market become the Coburg Farmer’s Fair for a week. This was to celebrate Fair Food week. The candidates for Wills from the 3 main parties came to talk about Food Policy, people from Transition Coburg generously donated their time and energy and built the school a new raised bed and some compost bins and there were other food oriented activities around the market.
Well done to everyone involved. Thanks this week go to Erica & Carla for making some delicious muffins. And to our volunteers: Suzi and Yathrib, John, Nicholas and Ethan (the latter’s contribution being mainly as a taste tester…), Anthony and his uncle, Carla and Rupert, Larissa, Vladimir, Sylvie, and Luca, Leftera, Andrew and Amy, Siham, Ayache and his two big sisters, Susan and Max, and 3/4A’s teacher – Danielle and her kids.
I really enjoyed meeting and working with those of you I met for the first time on Saturday. Apologies for not having more photos this week. My normal camera is playing up and the a number of those that I took on my phone didn’t work. I will try and capture those I missed if they volunteer again next market.
The next market is on the 14th September and 3/4A will be back cooking up a storm.
