Wednesday 19 October is an opportunity for wine and food lovers to contribute directly to this region’s cultural diversity, with all funds raised from a top-quality dinner at Harvest going to support Boomerang Indigenous arts and culture festival.

Regular readers will know of our enthusiasm for Harvest’s foraged-food menu. It’s something really special because it is a unique dining experience. The foraged food is gathered wild from our very local area and changes weekly, but also it involves a unique collaboration between the chefs (Harvest’s Bret Cameron and Noah Kaufman) and the forager (Peter Hardwick, with more than 40 years’ experience in the industry). Diners also have the opportunity to interact with Peter to learn more about the ingredients.

Foraging also involves a sharing of ideas with Indigenous culture, with its long historical knowledge of bush foods, and the evening will include a mix of foraging, food and gathering stories from Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal perspectives.

Boomerang director Rhoda Roberts said that events like this are ‘about sharing and working together to truly close the gap. This is the future of what partnerships look like, and we’re leading the change right here on my country.’

If you want, and let’s face it who wouldn’t, the dinner can also be enhanced by inspired cocktails by mixologist Sam Curtis and wine pairings by sommelier Russ Berry.

Wednesday 19 October. Four-course degustation dinner $70 (or with beverage pairing $115). E: [email protected] or call 6687 2644 to make your reservation.


Support The Echo

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.

Last mayoral candidates Q and A: are you a landlord?

Here at The Echo we have seen and heard the word ‘housing’ come up time and again throughout the local government election campaign period, whether it’s from candidates or other voters.

On the ground work assists evicted women 

We know the region has some of the highest rents, and highest housing costs in Australia. We all know that this has virtually eliminated affordable housing. We hear the stories of women and children being evicted, of couch surfing and living in cars.

Today is International Day of People with Disability

This language trend around People With a Disability has tended to emphasise the disability rather than the person, which can lead to derogatory labelling, depersonalisation or impersonal, collective references.
