A list of the Grow Lightly Winter Events

This week we have two events at the Grow Lightly Hub: book club and Cooking class – curries

Tuesday June 4 Monthly Book Club: On Tuesday June 4 come to Grow Lightly Hub (near the Coal Creek Car Park on Silkstone Road) and meet like minded people for a lively and refreshing discussion. The book club is always on the first Tuesday of the month, every month. It will be friendly and informal and we hope you will leave nourished and inspired. Bring a favourite book on farming, food, gardening, sustainability, environment, or anything really, to share briefly why you enjoyed it, what you learned, how it has impacted aspects of your life. There will be no pressure to speak and you are welcome to just come to listen. If you have a copy of Retrosuburbia by David Holmgren please bring it. If you don’t have one there is one you can borrow. Or it is available from the Korumburra Library.
7.00 pm Venue: the food hub at 12A Silkstone Rd, Korumburra. Please park in Coal Creek Carpark. Gold coin donation.

For some of the time each month, we are reading and discussing Retrosuburbia by David Holmgren – a guide to a resilient future. Whether you are on a small block or in a unit or on land of some acres, this book is inspiring. Are you looking to create a more sustainable life? Would you like to be more resilient in the face of growing uncertainties? Would you like to retrofit your house, your community and your life? Are you interested in downshifting but don’t know where to start? Find out more on Tuesday!

Class is on June 6. Book now for your early bird tickets!

What are the benefits of a good curry? Curries are delicious and beautifully warming. We will be making a fragrant chicken korma curry (or vegetarian option) with a south east Asian twist using fresh local seasonal vegetables and herbs.

This class is part of our 2019 home cooking series and is on June 6 from 1 pm to 3.30 pm at Grow Lightly Hub in Korumburra. Early bird tickets are still available at the special early bird price of $55 until June 3. For that you get a meal for four to take home for that night’s dinner, recipe sheets, cooking tips and hints from a fabulous teacher and have fun as well. It’s a win-win situation. Join us.
