This Is The Maze The Girls Built!

It’s been such a treat working with Tenneccee, Chiffona and Camryn; three awesome students at LRCS who were keen for after school and weekend work and we were thrilled to give them the opportunity to be part of THE Hungry Spirit, learn some new skills and of course earn some extra spending (or saving) money!!

Cleaning up THE Hungry Spirit space from weeds that had sprung up after all the rain we’ve been having was the first priority and then we wanted to create an area for kids, somewhere they could play, explore…so Tenneccee and Chiffona came up with the

Good For Your Gut Fizzy Drink

20161001_071524

I enjoy experimenting with food, it’s true = but I have to admit to being a bit dubious…and quite scared of starting to culture things. My previous experience of culturing was a sourdough which went very well for a few weeks and then subsequently died when I had to go away for a while.

But I attended a workshop we hosted by Lightning Ridge local and health guru Millie and she showed me how easy it was to make KEFIR.

So she gave me some grains and I began the process of making it.

KEFIR is a fermented drink that

Kids In THE Garden

kids-in-garden-around-rebel

We had a gorgeous hour and a half in THE Hungry Spirit garden with 7 children aged 2-9 on 24th September for our Kids In THE Garden Workshop.

Together we enjoyed learning about worms, picking cabbages and mulberries (their red fingers and lips gave the sneaky picking away!), digging in the dirt, planting seeds, transplanting seedlings and learning how to feed the worms and make new garden beds with shredded newspaper and mulch!

There was lots of laughter and activity and learning. They were all very patient and waited their turns, watched their step in the garden and listened to
