Eat Healthy, Shop the Market

13th of December 2018

Hi there

Te Mahanga Orchard Wes Reichel.jpg

Tis the season to be jolly, tralala!  This time of the year combines equal measures of fatigue, anticipation of less busy-ness to come and out right joy at all the acts of kindness all around us and plentiful summer produce at the market.

Frog Rock will be back at the market this week with cherries, Allysan with her gorgeous bouquets, Wes from Te Mahanga with, fingers crossed, new season garlic and Blueskin Flowers with Christmas lilies.

We love having the Mosgiel Brass Band regale us with Christmas carols over the month of December. Please support them as I think they have bought a level of Christmas cheer to many people that would be hard to replicate any other way.

See you Saturday

Kate

Did you know?
Extra Virgin Olive Oils from the Tuscan varietals have the highest concentrations of polyphenols. Polyphenols are chemical compounds naturally found in plants, which contribute to olive oil health benefits. They’re also antioxidants with myriad health benefits, such as combating cell damage and fighting diseases like heart disease, high blood pressure, cholesterol and some cancers. Due to the high polyphenol level in Tuscan olive varieties, their olive oils often taste peppery, pungent and grassier than Spanish or French olive oils. Dunford Grove Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced from the Tuscan varietals: Leccino, Frantoio & Pendilino.

Composting, Planting, and Making a Difference

plant sale 2018.jpg

Doubt Not. We are two guys trying to clean up Dunedin's organic waste going to landfill. We collect hospitality food wastage and turn it into compost. With this compost we are growing a range of plants and trees. To promote this change of waste management and create access to our conscious composting system we are not charging for our service. To make this a sustainable waste management diversion system we are selling the plants grown in compost. These sales help to cover the cost of our conscious composting system.Please help support by buying a plant or a few if you'd like! We appreciate any help.
