Our food source - local or industrial

BY AARON BROCKEN
@ VOL 12 ON MAY 20, 2015

We are what we eat...

In our business we work with local farmers from the Hawkesbury area and if possible, with local organic fruit and vegetables. The products are sourced locally and are fair trade. 

We use as less package as we can, so we reuse everything, we don’t buy anything that is made outside of Australia and we recycle as much as we can, so that the product we deliver to you has low environmental impact, low food miles and a lot of character!

Aaron was born on an organic blueberry farm that we still get produce from on occasion. He spent a big part of his youth being dragged to the Richmond community garden (Earthcare) and around NSW with his dad certifying Organic farms. As soon as he was 18 he hit the road for 7 years and visited over 60 countries on 4 different continents. He is now back and dedicated to providing a framework for a local food system to work.

Conscious Investigations

BY ABI TARIQ
@ VOL 12 ON MAY 20, 2015

' Into/Out of ' or 'balance . . . '

AV piece created at WEST project space, Blue Mountains, Australia.

'Into/Out of' or 'b a l a n c e . . .' takes from physical endurance practices a life lesson of leaning into the pain, into the posture; easing into what is difficult as well as out of what is rigid and no longer efficient or worth nurturing.

Theoretically this implies not giving-in to the 'always-already tragedy', and instead attempting to steadily remain in the in-between space, where we are constantly moving 'into' and 'out of' moments (in our minds and in real-physical-space).

Though this may be an impossibility, it yields momentary escape and thus possibility, until we fall again. But we seekers, always keep trying against all odds hoping to break through as underdogs – don't we?

BY NYLA THOMAS
@ VOL 11 ON FEB 06, 2015

A conversation with Nyla Thomas who was driven away from serious forensic police work into an experience of natural beauty on offer in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney. Nyla explains how having a dream and making it come true can give you many rewards - whether you're enjoy stunning views or vistas, or it's horse riding or cycling across valleys and bushlands, or sampling good food and wine, there's bound to be a dream that's right for you.
Even if you are a cat.
