Bringing the best and brightest of the Great Lakes and Manning sustainable produce movement together, Grow Your Own’s ‘Grower’s Area’ allows you to eat and drink locally-sourced goodness. From tasty cheese plates matched with boutique wines and kombucha cocktails, to tailored stall menus sourced completely from local products - the forefront of the area’s growing foodie movement will be at the doorstep of the festival.
The lineup of Growers will expand from the plate to the garden - with a permaculture garden and potted gardens for the urban green thumb, featuring bee hives and a rotating list of young producers keen to share their craft. Make bread with Lydia, learn how Rachel lived a month eating entirely her own homegrown food, and discover why bees are the world’s most important pollinator with Amber Drop Honey. There will be plenty more growers to meet; fisherman, farmers and more.
A pop-up cinema will immerse festival-goers into the life and story of a Grower with local film Teach A Man to Fish (Sydney Film Festival/Byron International Film Festival) based on historic, indigenous family the Saunders and other films.
