Exciting times at “100 mile foodie kitchen garden” as we watch the dream roll out week after week. Kate our Amazing gardener extraordinaire has transformed a underutilised area of our block to an amazing productive soon to be fresh food-producing zone which will  service our cooking school, local chefs tailored orders and of course our families “seed to table” meals.We are also very thankful to our wonderful neighbour Allan who has done some serious hard yards laying builders plastic, building a hothouse out of an old woodshed, building a new woodshed, putting in overflow taps etc & of course us the 100 mile foodie family, thanks guys we’ve all done an awesome job 🙂
