Yesterday Brad & I had a bit of a sticky beak around the National Environment Center at Thurgoona.
National Environment Center. Organic Farm
We were looking to poach some ideas and glean some useful information to develop our little patch of paradise when we were sprung by the manager / principal tramping around the vegie gardens.
All good though, a friendly chat ensued and before we knew it, I had enrolled in a course. I am now an enrolled student, to be studying for
Diploma of Agriculture (Organic Production)
How about that !
Brad & I are looking forward to arming ourselves with the best knowledge available to sustainably farm our 50 acre plot to first and foremost provide our family with a wide variety of organic produce.
I will fit this in and around my new 'Thermomix' job. Which I am really enjoying : ) Meeting great people whom most are passionate about eating 'clean' foods, no additives, no preservatives, or as my kids say , 'numbers in the food'. I cannot claim we are are angels at this, but we are minimising these nasties as far as practical. Thermomix is a great tool for helping make that aim simpler. : )
May I leave you with this, ( but please don't read this if you are at this minute eating your supermarket purchased bread ..... )
Things in bread you don't want to know about.
