Celebrating spring with family

Latrobe City Mayor, Councillor Kellie O'Callaghan said the event was a great way to bring families together to celebrate the coming of spring. "And it is also an opportunity to learn - about growing food, sustainability and no waste recipes, as well as have fun! Many of the workshops are being delivered or supported by local traders."

"We are also delighted to welcome guest speaker, Nornie Bero, to the event. Nornie owns two successful restaurants which highlight First Nations ingredients, culture and stories. She has also written a cookbook, 'Mabu Mabu' showcasing true Australian recipes. Nornie's philosophy is that if we use native ingredients, it's better for the environment, better for the land, and better for all of us in general.

"The festival is a great way for the community to reconnect with the Seed Library and its simple premise to borrow seeds, grow them and share the harvest," Cr O'Callaghan said.

The Seed and Feed Fest will run from 11am to 4pm with a range of workshops and activities for all the family including flower arranging, blender bike, build your own Lego garden, pot painting, a special food[1]related Storytime and more.
