We believe that food has the power to change the world – we are what we eat and what we are, is how our world will be.
Our mission is to help develop a new local organic food system by supporting the growth of small independent growers and producers, who share a wholistic, sustainable approach to their life and work. The result will be an increase in production of healthy organic food that truly nourishes our community, sustains our natural environment and contributes toward a shift in our culture as consumers.
By developing these relationships with sustainably minded organic food producers, we will continue to grow a system which has greater accountability than the faceless corporate ‘supermarket’ alternative. This establishes a direct connection between growers and consumers – an important relationship that results in the production of real food for real people – food that is fresher, tastier and far more nutritious than food grown in heavily mechanised, chemical based mainstream monoculture systems.
In the super market, the focus is on centralised mass monoculture production, efficiency and profit. In our future market, the focus is on multiple small scale polyculture farms, local food systems, health, nutrition and sustainability.
We want to provide real food that is better for you, your family and your planet.
Food brings us together each day – it is nature’s gift to us that we all share in common. How we feel as individuals and how we interact with each other as a society is largely dependant on the quality of food that we eat. If our diet consists of heavily processed foods, grown unnaturally in toxic conditions, our bodies will feel tired & lethargic, our minds heavy and unclear.
Food grown naturally using organic methods, is full of the nutrients our bodies need to be strong, healthy and full of energy; our minds will be clear and focused.
This is the simple power of food – it is not only the fuel that drives us as individuals every day – it is the fuel that drives our world – and as we come to realise that our world is not as it should be, we search for ways to make it better – and one of these ways is with how we grow, supply and consume our food as local & global communities.
We want to celebrate the goodness of food – food that tastes great, is full of life and energy and is grown in a way that regenerates our soils and ensures that nutritious food will be abundant for our great great grandchildren.
Happy food for a happy world 🙂
We welcome you to come & help us shape the future of our local food system.
