First of all, the above link is to Michele's blog on SLT's September workshop, well timed with the carnival of flowers this month in Toowoomba!
Linda Brennan, author of "A Delicious Bunch" came along and inspired us all with her edible flowers and recipes...and tips on organic gardening. I was very impressed by Linda. She and her husband have even gone to the effort of doing a green house flip on their home, making it eco friendly. She obviously LOVES gardening and eating of her produce. I noticed other little things too, like the fact that Linda wasn't using the latest and greatest kitchen equipment, she was even being green in that department, using her perfectly functional old-style food processor.
The above picture is a sunflower seed biscuit, decorated with an array of edible flowers, that we assembled at the workshop. Wouldn't they make beautiful high tea snacks? Beautiful and very wholesome.
I believe our next workshop will be with The Source Wholefoods, sharing with us ways to go green and make whole food/organic eating more affordable. Keep an eye out for details! To be the first to know, just email us on the "contact" page and your email can be added to the mailout list.
