We often talk in these pages about the high standard of local produce, and we mentioned on 16 June in these pages that Pocket Herbs & Produce of Billnudgel were state winners of the Delicious Produce Awards for their karkalla (a green native food, part of a range they produce with Indigenous organisation, Currie Country – see the story at The Echo online). Now they have gone on to be one of 18 national winners for their category. It is, perhaps unsurprisingly, on the menu at Karkalla restaurant in Byron Bay. Congratulations!
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.
