The new North East Local Produce Guide is OUT NOW!
We were thrilled to have Costa Georgiadis, host of ABC's Gardening Australia, officially launch the Guide in Wodonga during Sustainable Living Week.
Costa spoke passionately about the importance of locally-grown food and the value of the new Guide.
"It really represents everything I believe a food system should be. Something that's local, something that's family-based, something that drives community, something that builds employment." said Costa. "Such a publication is way more powerful than it looks."
More than 90 local growers are featured in the book, which aims to connect consumers, farmers and local retailers, to support local agricultural production and more sustainable, self-supporting food systems.
You can get your hands on a copy for just $5 from produce outlets across the region – check the list of stockists on the website.
