Food waste: A not-quite-right world of possibility

Sunday, July 26th, 2015 at 5:59 pm

So you want a hip job in the local food system? Well you’d do worse than throwing yourself into food waste (well not actually throwing yourself in).  Anyway, since the 2013 Foodwise food waste report identified that we throw about $8 billion worth of perfectly good food into Australian landfills each year, solving the food waste issue has become a […]

When you get your box, store your potatoes in a brown paper bag and write the name of the variety (listed in what’s in the box […]

Polystyrene esky there’s something I need to tell you. Everybody’s talking soup at me.

Sunday, July 19th, 2015 at 5:49 pm

For a long time now I’ve been having this conversation over and over in my head – it goes something like….. …..Polystyrene esky, I think we need to change our relationship.   I know we’ve been together for a long time but it feels like we’ve got this unhealthy co-dependant thing going on.  It’s, it’s….it’s….well you’re […]

Shop News. World International Soup Week

Thursday, July 16th, 2015 at 5:45 pm

It’s easy to imagine the origins of soup – throwing everything you have handy into a pot of water on a fire – you can even envisage it’s onomatopoeic name popping into existence – ‘What’s in that pot?’ ‘What that pot?’ ‘Yeah that pot.’ ‘Uhhhhmmmmmahhh…it’s….it’s…soup! Yeah, it’s soup. Soup.’ ‘Soup huh. Smells really good.’ You […]

In the field this week. Josh’s produce report.

Sunday, July 12th, 2015 at 11:52 am

I’m at home sitting over the heater looking at the weather forecast – if ever there was a time to appreciate farmers then this is the week. And some of the farmers who do it toughest at times like this are the market gardeners (sorry dairy farmers – next time I promise).  I rang Shelley Heppell from Green Gully Organics (that’s […]

Human scale in a tilt slab world. Do you want to build a scoby?

Sunday, July 5th, 2015 at 11:43 am

We’re in WA for the school holidays visiting family. Driving in from the airport Perth can seem all McMansion suburbs serviced by concrete tilt slab strip malls filled with brand outlets, a celebration of corporate growth culture.  I didn’t expect to find much here until I was talking to my mother-in law, Jenny, about kimchi.  You need to go to the kimchi shop she […]
