Paddock to Plate
About the event
It’s Sunday morning. You stumble out of bed bleary eyed to head to your local café for brunch. You order your first coffee of the day and a big plate of what ever takes your fancy. STOP!!!
Before you order, ask yourself some questions. Is this food locally sourced? Has it been grown without chemicals? Are these eggs truly free-range? Was the pig that is now this bacon, killed ethically?
Come on a journey with us and find out the truth at our ‘Paddock to Plate’ day excursion with Clare and John Voitin.
Clare was a participant in our last Talk on Purpose event and she has kindly invited us to their café Scarvelli for breakfast and then to their fabulous farm Swan Bay for lunch. Check out Clare’s awesome talk!
We’ll get to see just where our food comes from, how it’s grown and harvested and ends up on your plate. We’ll get to explore just how we can all become more conscious consumers and diners and understand how we might reduce our food footprint on our most precious environment.
This is a day for all the family! Here’s the itinerary:
