Posted on Jan 22, 2014 in What's On

I met the vivacious Lizzie Moult from Strayed Table at Eat Drink Blog 2012. Lizzie’s spirited character coupled with her farm knowledge is the reason I wanted to share with you the hands-on Garden Basics Workshop she’s involved in at Huthwaite Farm in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Together with Gary Hands of Kookaburra Organics, I’m sure your green-thumb day will bring you much fun, laughs and a wealth of garden basic knowledge.
