Co-founder, Cassie Duncan, offers a raw and deeply personal account of how she’s processing climate grief, whilst providing a practical pathway for channelling this panic into a climate-conscious way forward, for us all. In the days, weeks, months since our great nation started to burn alive, I have felt this deep, despairing pain. Like someone has [...]

A Christmas of “Surprise, There’s No Meat in This!”

By |2019-12-17T17:08:46+11:00December 17th, 2019|Categories: ethical eating, recipes|

There’s certain bravery in defying tradition and not serving meat for Christmas. It’s akin to riding a bike with gears and breaks past a group of fixie-clad hipsters.

I wrote a post on social media on Mother’s Day which resonated with many, so I have decided to share it on the blog.

At the risk of making sweeping generalisations, it does appear that men are far more affronted by the prospect of removing meat from their diet, even for a day or heaven help us a whole week. With Meat Free Week just around the corner we sought out a ‘good Aussie bloke’ who has dramatically reduced his meat [...]

It’s not meat. It’s you.

Meat Free Week is just around the corner, running from 24th-30th September, and it turns out that going meat free, even for a week, is a pretty polarising topic.

Robert Pekin and Emma-Kate Rose of Food Connect Brisbane fame are entering a brave new world of equity crowdfunding and need the community’s support to turn their dream of having a Food Hub owned and run by the people into a reality. PLEDGE YOUR SUPPORT A LITTLE BACKSTORY… Way back in 2009 when I was [...]
