GUEST SPEAKER FOR NOVEMBER 2017 MEETING

At the November meeting we will welcome Simone Jelley of Pretty Produce to tell us about the large range of leaf mixes and edible flowers she produces.

'Pretty Produce' sounds superficial, superfluous and fluffy. The reality of the grower's vision of' 'what is edible', the culture of the growers ethics in the agricultural producers thorny landscape in Australia and the wider issues of building food security with local seed banks and sustainable farming practices in sensitive communities are at the pointy end of where 'Pretty Produce' has birthed from. Also renowned for growing rare, unusual and bespoke crafted produce for chefs, cake makers and the general public.

Pretty Produce has won the Delicious Produce Awards National Gold Medal "From the Earth" 2016 and 2017.
