The Blue Knob Farmers’ Market is staging a Sustainability Alley at this year’s Nimbin Show. With around 15 stalls the Alley will showcase sustainability and self-sufficiency ventures from the local area – such as Nimbin Natural Beekeepers, Northern Rivers Hemp and Djanbung Permaculture Gardens. Several sample stalls from the market will offer local honey, a barbecue with locally grown meat, vegetables, fruit, organic seedlings and more.

An innovation this year will be a Paddock to Plate Café with virtually all menu items being supplied by Blue Knob Market farmers and food producers. The market is also well known for its educational seminars and hands-on workshops. These will continue in the Speakers Tent with two days of free, informative presentations. Starting at 10am, topics range from Keeping Native Bees and Growing and Building with Hemp to On-Farm Generation of Biogas and Making Your Own Biodiesel.
