Is hydrogen part of a sustainable energy future?

There’s a lot to like about hydrogen. For starters, it’s abundant. Hydrogen can store excess renewable power. When liquified, it’s more energy intense than fossil alternatives. In a fuel cell, it can generate electricity. When it’s burned, the only by-product is water.

Jumping Red Ant will have its usual colourful blooms to put a smile on mum’s face this Sunday

As mothers across Australia look forward to (slightly burnt) toast in bed, the local farmers and producers in our beautiful Byron Shire and Northern Rivers are also gearing up to share the love. Mullumbimby Farmers Market will be open as usual on Friday 7 May, two days before Mothers Day on Sunday 9 May.

A treat from the market, such as flowers, chocolate and fresh products of the highest quality, can show your mum that you notice, and love, all the little things that she does.

Jumping Red Ant will have its usual colourful blooms to put a smile on mum’s face. John’s famous homegrown roses are a regular sight in the arms of lucky punters as they make their way through the market with the weekly shopping.

Puremelt Chocolate also has some decadent options to spoil mum for all her hard work and good advice. Pop in to see them for raw organic handmade chocolates, chai, hot chocolate and ice chocolate. Puremelt owner Sarah Wheeler says that her handmade, small batch chocolate is not only guilt free, it’s actually good for you. So good, in fact, she describes it as ‘therapeutic grade’.

If flowers and chocolates aren’t mum’s thing, making a hamper of fresh, local produce is a great way to show your appreciation. We are living in one of the most fertile and fruitful pockets of the country after all – with so many artisanal small businesses offering products to create the perfect gourmet hamper.

And if you want to have your flowers and eat them too… the good news is that you can! Call by the Mullum Farmers Market on Friday morning and visit Kenrick and Ismerie at Wiccawood Organics for a bunch of their edible flowers!

Mullumbimby Farmers Market
7–11am every Friday at Mullumbimby Showgrounds.
