Northey Street Farm is the ideal venue for this colourful event featuring global cuisine, Music, dance, Art and Craft, children's activities and workshops demonstrating Northey Street's ongoing program around permaculture and Gardening.
The Sunday organic market brings people from across the city and region clearly demonstrating the success of this intiative with so many flocking to this weekly event.
Brisbane City Council and Bemac - Brisbane Multicultural Arts Centre - are hosting this day along with Northey Street Farm.
Below: A sample page from the farm's permaculture cookbook - 'Share'. At $20 a copy its impressive. An all time favourites is the humble nasturtium, having drawn them, painted them, eaten them, saved their seeds (SO easy!) and popped the flowers in jars of water around home and studio. Unable to enlarge this image of the natsurtium pods below you can perhaps make out that they have been pickled - they taste apparently not unlike Capers. On the right are Rosellas which are known for traditional jam making - the colour is vibrant and its one of the natives plants no doubt available at the nursery.
