Now is the time to spend in our community, and an increasing number of locals have been getting out of the ‘Panic Aisle’ at Woolies and buying from the local stalls around the place. One of the benefits of getting your veggies along Broken Head Rd is that you can pop in to Zentveld’s farm-based coffee roastery for some coffee on the way – they even have a system now where you order your coffee online, then you receive a text with your locker code. Your coffee, is waiting for you in a locker at the front gate, so you can pick it up before or after hours for maximum self-isolation!

The Northern Rivers is home to some top class and innovative producers who are doing it tough now that the restaurants are closed, so if you are looking for some natural, healthy produce check out the Northern Rivers Food member directory at northernriversfood.org.

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.
