There will be something extra special to celebrate at the Tuntable Falls Preschool and Primary annual fete on Saturday.

The school has just been the recipient of a $60,000 grant from Stephanie Alexander’s Kitchen Garden program and will be showing off the results.

An unused paddock has been transformed into a productive garden and an old classroom into a working kitchen, giving kids the opportunity to plant, cultivate, harvest, cook and eat their own produce.

The fete, which runs from 10am till 4pm, will also offer wood-fired pizza from their newly build pizza oven, freshly made waffles with ice-cream and lots more.

Stalls will include seedlings, secondhand clothes and bric-a-brac. There will also be art and circus workshops.

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
