Feel like getting your hands dirty and helping out our new young farmer?

Suria Foods will be on site prepping beds and getting her new patch at Future Feeders up a running Wed from 8am.

Visit the farm and come say hello. Follow the track through the Mullumbimby Community Gardens to the market garden at the rear.

PM Suria Foods for more infoIntroducing Katerina as a new face at Future Feeders.

Super excited to be growing another farmer from the ground up!

Follow along, engage and support Katerina on this journey on FB, Instagram @futurefeeders and @katerina_suria and of course : find out more on the website : www.futurefeeders.org

Katerina is embarking as the very first participant of the "Micro Farm Incubator" program at our market garden at the Mullumbimby Community Garden

You may have been lucky enough to have already sampled her amazing produce at Suria Foods which is available at a number of local markets.

She is taking a big jump in scale and production and will be tackling the entire value chain for her awesome delicious fermented products.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Future Feeders has been established in order to support and develop opportunities for young farmers in small scale agriculture within the local food economy.

A key obstacle to the development of young farmers is supportive pathways into the industry.

The Micro Farm Incubator (MFI) is a 1 year program with resources, infrastructure and secure land access within a framework which is low risk and supportive.

Future Feeders are encouraged to explore their ideas, business concepts, products and production methods through a peer-supported learning through doing approach and use the MFI opportunity as a launchpad into the industry and sustainable food system.

Look at that soil!!! Delicious 😍

Unfortunately very hard to grow garlic at MCG - just not right temperature conditions - not cold enough at night. What to do? Grow Russian garlic (a variety of onion) or plant normal garlic - put cloves in fridge overnight before planting - and harvest and use as ‘wet garlic’ (green) as used in Asian cooking, because the bulbs won’t set into cloves. Or should I say 'rarely' - a cold winter will do it and choosing the right variety. It's all about microclimate - a few kms. up the valley - where it's colder - and they have success.🌼
