This tour is to demonstrate the opportunities in niche markets that are available to horticulturists, strengthening our regional food networks.
Linda Palmer, Chief Bottle Washer at Goanna Brewery and farmer will discuss their philosophy and process for using local produce that may have otherwise gone to waste, as well as home-grown lychees, mangoes, bananas and citrus. They also compost hops from the brewery to fertilise crops.
