Location: Culburra Beach , NSW, Australia

I live in Australia, my ancestry is in Cornwall. a Celt. a hedgewitch of sorts. I am an Earth Healer. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. A gypsy. An eccentric. a mystic. I am a searcher, a seeker, a pilgrim on Earth. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. I love to dream, to walk and to wonder

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

* slow food *

here in the Blue Mountains there are quite a lot of old homes with old gardens. Many fruit trees bear fruit, year after year with most of it going to waste. A group of fun people have joined together to get all these fruit trees onto a community register and each year some will gather the fruit and others will make it into jams; pickles & chutneys. I have an 80 year old apple tree that bears prolifically each year and there are only so many apple pies and crumbles that we can eat. I also have a persimmon tree that bears well. This group also goes out to dinner once a month to an organic restaurant that uses all local produce. I decided to join up today...it sounds like lots of fun and plenty of sharing of ideas. They call themselves the slow food group as nothing is fast * they take time to sit at a table enjoying home grown produce with friends and like minded people * how perfect !!!!

I love the concept of the "slow food" movement and slowly but surely it is making an impact on more and more communities...good for you ms*robyn for doing your bit ~ wonderful!

This just caused me to take a deep, relaxing breath thinking of you all getting together like this.

Bet you'll make some special friends too in the bargain!
